“The development of TrueCrypt was ended in 5/2014 after Microsoft terminated support of Windows XP. Windows 8/7/Vista and later offer integrated support for encrypted disks and virtual disk images. Such integrated support is also available on other platforms (click here for more information). You should migrate any data encrypted by TrueCrypt to encrypted disks or virtual disk images supported on your platform,” Truecrypt website warned.
- Government or Intelligence Agency forced the developers to include a backdoor for them, but they refused and shut it down like Lavabit encrypted email service.
- Someone hijacked the website and Crypto keys to raise false alarms.
