All ASA models should be able to accommodate for this using a specific enough regex string within an inspect class-map riding in an http inspect policy-map. You'd have to know what you are looking for to match with regex, whose config lines are limited to 100-something chars. For something more scalable and configurable, a full-fledged IPS would probably be preferred.

You might also take a look at the ACE Web Application Firewall (WAF). This product is specifically designed for protecting websites against attacks like this (and a number of other web specific attacks).

Any ASA with IPS module in it can take care of all types of known attacks.

the signature definition database of ips gets updated every week/ 15 can set it up to auto update and it'll fetch those definitions on it's own.

f/w with intrusion prevention system is the complete solution to go for.Alone,f/w is not effective enough when it comes to layer 7 inspection.
