This is brand-spanking-new news.

Here's the only article I can find on the subject as of yet:
http://www.idigitaltimes.com/articles/23222/20140528/what-happened-truecrypt-encryption-software-development-ends-hacked-defaced.htm


The project page just says that the project has been shutdown and offers no
good explanation. http://truecrypt.sourceforge.net/

=============================================================== From: David White ------------------------------------------------------ Someone's response on a different list I'm a part of, with my response (my response is on top): Agreed. This Reddit thread seems to have a good number of folks making the same conclusion: http://www.reddit.com/r/crypto/comments/26px1i/truecrypt

=============================================================== From: flushy@flushy.net ------------------------------------------------------ Yeah.. Add to the anonymous nature of the devs, the "hack", the version that only decrypts.. that spells the end of TrueCrypt for me. I use luks now anyways. --b Quoting David White :

=============================================================== From: William Roush ------------------------------------------------------ Agreed, kind of sitting on my hands waiting to see if anything major surfaces, otherwise.... I guess BitLocker at work? :\ William Roush william.roush@roushtech.net 423-463-0592 http://www.roushtech.net/blog/

=============================================================== From: flushy@flushy.net ------------------------------------------------------ Well, this is interesting: Truecrypt is alive and well and living in Switzerland http://www.theinquirer.net/inquirer/news/2347787/truecrypt-is-alive-and-well-and-living-in-switzerland Website (sort of slow for me while on Starbucks WiFi). http://truecrypt.ch/ --b Quoting William Roush :
