If you happened to have updated any of your applications in which were released today (the updates) than there is a chance that the app is corrupt. Any developers who have seeded those updates did so as usual, but Apple somewhere along the way caused the files to upload as corrupted.
Instapaper developer Marco Arment first brought up the issue early this morning. Arment’s Instapaper application was updated to 4.2.3 this morning and crashes upon opening. Apple hasn’t yet spoke publicly to developers about the issue.
I’ll repeat my warning to developers: if you can help it, DO NOT release app updates today. The corruption is widespread and ongoing.
Arment also provided a list of issues. A few include not showing the default.png before crashing, only affecting customers in certain regions,receiving the error 8324 or 8326 on iTunes(when updating), and even your device showing the error “AppleFairplayTextCrypterSession::fairplayOpen() failed, error -42110″.
A few developers of the application Scanner Pro noticed the problem, and provide more information regarding it:
The problem was in the App Store distribution system. iTunes servers were sending corrupted application packages to many users, mostly in the US and UK. Sometimes immediate reinstall worked. For others, it took several hours to receive a valid archive… Less than 1% users downloading the update faces the problem for now.
All the applications updated and affected by the issue can be found by clicking here. There are quite a few, so hopefully Apple can fix this problem before to many users update.
