Corrupt App Store Binaries Crashing on Launch

Marco Arment, investigating a crash-on-launch bug in Instapaper:

Lots of anxiety and research led me to the problem: a seemingly corrupt update being distributed by the App Store in many or possibly all regions.

And this is happening to other apps, not just Instapaper, updated in the last few days.

Marco is also doing some fun follow-up on Twitter, looking at the attribution of various tech news sites linking to and/or rewriting his reporting on the issue.
