Firefox and Defense+Events


I noticed that under “Proactive Defense”, it says “The Defense+ has blocked 58 suspicious attempt(s)”. When I checked for the application, I was surprised to find that it was Firefox!

On further investigation:

Application: Firefox.exe
Action: Access Memory
Target: cmdagent.exe

(Note: I’ve omitted the file paths)


Windows XP SP3, Comodo Firewall with Microsoft Security Essentials.

I’m curious as to why this is happening and whether this is normal or not.

Sorry if this has been asked before.
