What Windows' hooks does Firefox use and how can determine if legitimate?
Detected WH_GETMESSAGE hook used by Firefox browser. What Windows' hooks are legitimately used by Firefox?
Additional System Details
- Adobe PDF Plug-In For Firefox and Netscape 11.0.12
- NPRuntime Script Plug-in Library for Java(TM) Deploy
- User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; WOW64; rv:40.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/40.0
There is no official way to determine this, though a quick Google search by the help of a mozillian found "a quick search of the source code implies WH_GETMESSAGE, WH_CALLWNDPROC, WH_MSGFILTER and WH_MOUSE, but these could change at any time"
Not the best answer but is what exists. I hope this helps.
