Only an utter imbecile would use a valid certificate to sign malware, so you have to figure that a bad actor got hold of a legit victim's certificate. When you get a cert, you're SERIOUSLY warned against letting the cert out of your hands.

On the other hand, the documentation for the things is so bad that it'd be easy for an innocent to turn loose the wrong version of a cert in response to a request from a customer. Or someone posing as one.
