Hey Apple users: If you're now experiencing hangs launching apps on the Mac, I figured out the problem using Little Snitch. It's trustd connecting to ocsp.apple.com Denying that connection fixes it, because OCSP is a soft failure. (Disconnect internet also fixes.)

Make sure you deny it for both system and user. I ended up having to make 2 rules.

If you're not using @littlesnitch then buy and install it ASAP :-)

It’s quite troubling that an Apple server being down could cause this. My iMac is sludge right now.

Thanks for the tip! Overriding in /etc/hosts worked for me as well.

I am experiencing this and have clean shot installed. How can I verify if this is the cause?
