“A security bug on Mac computers is forcing some Apple users to delete and reinstall software they’ve downloaded from the App Store,” James Vincent reports for The Verge.
“First spotted by developer Paul Haddad, the problem seems to be caused by an expired security certificate used by Apple to verify apps,” Vincent reports. “The iPhone-maker has since issued a new certificate (with an expiry date of April 2035, according to The Guardian), but this hasn’t completely fixed the problem.”
“While some people have fixed the problem by simply disconnecting and reconnecting to the Mac App Store,” Vincent reports, “others say the only reliable solution is to reinstall all of the affected apps.”
