Error 42148 - Xar Archive Corrupted
« on: April 11, 2014, 10:17:41 AM »
I am receiving 22 of these warnings on a five day old macbook pro, though I've owned macbooks for years without ever receiving this warning. Anyone have any ideas as to what this is and how I can get rid of it? I've had a hard time finding information about it online. Thank you.

Hello,
  this is not the best error message, however it means that our unpacker was not capable to verify the content of the concrete XAR archive.

Well, we buy a third-party unpacker that allows us to scan a file content in a memory not extracting it to a disk. Unfortunatelly, the unpacker cannot handle all the file formats. If these archives are provided by Apple, you can be pretty sure they are OK and you can ignore this warning.
