[Req] macOS Monterey error: xattr: [Errno 9] Bad file descriptor

macOS Monterey 12.0 is largely based on Big Sur, but brings some new elements in both applications Apple as well as at the kernel level, where as usual the emphasis is on security and protection of user privacy.

I do not recommend, but I know that there are many users who use utilities such as Adobe Zii (Universal Patcher) to activate applications.

On previous operating systems, the most common error returned when running Adobe Zii was: "Adobe Zii is damaged and can't be opened. You should eject the disk image“. Easy to solve without the need for too much experience, if you follow the tutorial written some time ago: How to Fix Error: App is damaged and can't be opened. You should eject the disk image.

Pe macOS Monterey I encountered an error running Adobe Zii that I couldn't get past at the moment, and Universal Patcher developers haven't come up with a dedicated version yet macOS 12.0.

The error is returned when running the command: xattr -cr for the Adobe Zii utility. As far as I know it is an error status "9" and wrong descriptor of the files that make up the utility. I think it's something like extended file permissions and attributes, but so far I haven't been able to figure it out. More precisely to do macOS to pass this check.

If you find one Solution for "xattr: [Errno 9] Bad file descriptor" error I look forward to your comments.
