In my previous post, I provided a tool to enable you to check your collection(s) of packages to determine if any are affected by the Package Apocalypse.

But what to do once you’ve found packages with expired signatures? If Apple has provided an updated replacement package at http://support.apple.com/downloads/, it’s probably best to replace the package with the expired signature with the updated one.

But that might not always be possible — Apple has not provided replacements for every package that has been affected, or the replacement might not be practical to use.
