dll where AuthenticodeDeformatter failed to read signature timestamp

I am using AuthenticodeDeformatter in one of my projects. It works perfectly in most of the scenarios, but I have couple of valid binaries of which signature timestamp is not recognized by the AuthenticodeDeformatter. I have analyzed the code and figured out that the issue lies in this portion of code:

private bool VerifyCounterSignature (PKCS7.SignerInfo cs, byte[] signature)
            if (cs.Version != 1)
                return false;


This particular check works for most of the binaries, but I had encountered some binaries in which the Version is 0, yet the Win32 APIs are able to get the TimeStamp correctly.
Attaching one of the binaries.
