Yes (and Lenny)

adzapper is in the main debian repositories:-
#apt-get adzapper
Note: I believe it requires squid

I'd recommend using adblock-plus instead - you can either install it as
an add-on/extension for Iceweasel/Firefox or from Debian:-
#apt-get xul-ext-adblock-plus

Note: adblock-plus requires only that you use Konqueror or Iceweasel,
and that you select a filter source from a drop-down list (that appears
in the web page which will load the first time you start your browser
after installing).
