Lapsed Apple certificate triggers large Mac app fiasco

A over Apple digital certificate currently triggered a large app failure that prevented Mac users from using program they’d purchased from a Mac App Store.

“Whenever we download an app from a Mac App Store, a app provides a cryptographically-signed receipt,” explained Paul Haddad, a co-founder of Tapbots, a association behind a renouned Tweetbot Twitter client, in an email respond to questions today. “These profits are sealed with several certificates with opposite death dates. One of those is a ‘Mac App Store Receipt Signing;’ that expires each dual years. That certificate lapsed on ‘Nov 11 21:58:01 2015 GMT,’ that caused many existent App Store profits to no longer be deliberate valid.”

Whoops.

The result: Bedlam.
