I use pf on current to do this when i do not like a connection.
pfctl has such an option, and yes i used it sometimes to kill connections
that i didn't like to see. Windows machines with messenger and other stuff
installed go unasked to sites or ip's on weird port numbers, when i notice
such a thing and i do not like or trust it, i kill the connection.
Though, lately when i a user complained that the anti-virus product found
something called keyspy.dll and i saw weird connections from that machine
i just pulled the cable from the nic from that machine. :-)
