Following the coverage on the web regarding App Store’s corrupt DRM, Apple has finally acknowledged the problem and has already solved it. Apple has also issued a statement according to which the temporary issue was due to a server that generated DRM code for some apps. In it’s official statement the company has asked the affected users to re-download the apps they were facing problems with.
Here’s the official statement by Apple:
“We had a temporary issue that began yesterday with a server that generated DRM code for some apps being downloaded. It affected only a small number of users.
“The issue has been rectified and we don’t expect it to occur again,” Apple said. Those who have an affected app can re-download it from the App Store.
Though Apple is rightly saying that a small number of users were affected by this issue, that small number consisted at least 20,000 InstaPaper customers who downloaded the update to the app on 3rd July. Other popular apps that were affected by this corrupt DRM issue include GoodReader, Angry Birds, and others.
