Aha, you just reminded me of the string matching module. A bit of Googling
returned this:

iptables -m string --string "X-Kazaa-Username:" -j DROP
iptables -m string --string "X-Kazaa-Network:" -j DROP
iptables -m string --string "X-Kazaa-IP:" -j DROP
iptables -m string --string "X-Kazaa-SupernodeIP:" -j DROP
