- When a normal Firefox engine engages with a web page and performs any kind of request (POST/GET) the User-Agent is set to 'Mozilla (Version)'. However, with some generic malware, they try to disguise their actions by having the User-Agent set to a browser but was poorly executed and set to Firefox instead of Mozilla. The Sentinel flags on this mistake and deems any User-Agent that is set to Firefox as malicious as any legitimate request from a Firefox browser will have the User-Agent set to Mozilla.
