I have observed that windows executable files show incorrect timestamps when I view them in PE studio. For example this Notepad.exe file shows a compiler timestamp of 0x86FCBD69 (Mon Oct 07 03:45:05 2041 )
To validate this today (3 May 2021),I converted a Python program file to EXE & checked the same in PE Studio. It also showed an incorrect compiler timestamp of 0x5FFEC122 (Wed Jan 13 15:15:06 2021 ) Python executable
Why are compiler timestamps incorrect ? To my understanding if the Python program was converted to exe today, it should show today's date under the compiler timestamp.
