I have a dotnet malware sample that I'm trying to debug with
dnSpy. It has string obfuscation (contains function names such as
BarriersBottomed, etc.) I cleaned the sample using
de4dot and renamed functions to make them more understandable.
I placed a breakpoint on
Main and also specified in the debug settings to break at
Entry Point, but the program never hits the breakpoint. When I click on
Start, it runs for a few seconds and then I get a
An unhandled exception occurred in kahjvb-cleaned.exe (2160) Exception: ??? Message: "<no exception message>"
So, in the
Debug options I checked the
Ignore unhandled exceptions and restarted debugging with the same options as before. Now, the debugger just runs for a few seconds and the debugging process completes. It still doesn't hit the breakpoint.
Has anyone faced an issue of this type before or has any insights into this problem? Thanks for the help!
