Python in Firefox proof of concept (PoC)

In this section, we will write a Python script, that will automate the exact steps that we did using Immunity Debugger. For this purpose, we will be using a Python library called winappdbg, to automate the debugging of the Firefox process. So, let's start by installing this library. You can download the library from

The steps mentioned in the Firefox process section, which we explained earlier can be translated into code. Let's do this step by step:
