We find that malware developers give descriptive names to their folders and code projects, often describing the capabilities of the malware in development. These descriptive names thus show up in a PDB path when a malware project is compiled with symbol debugging information. Everyone loves an origin story, and debugging information gives us insight into the malware development environment, a small, but important keyhole into where and how a piece of malware was born. We can use our newfound insight to detect malicious activity based in part on PDB paths and other debug details.
