I have extracted a presence of
MZ file from memory which happen to be available in VirusTotal ( might be a malicious executable). However, I could not run the program. It seems to have some missing resources. It claims that the debug information is missing, and the PDB is incomplete (Executable compiled with Visual Studio). I am still a beginner and I am wondering if that is truly relevant for the program not being able to run? I thought that the debug information is not necessary to run a program, am I correct? I have an assumption that the program is flagged somewhere to make it act as in debugging mode until it receives something? Not sure if my assumption is even possible.
If anyone can direct me by answering my questions or advising me where to look to find what is missing. Even answering by saying my claim is irrelevant can also help me a lot.
