    The popular open-source encryption software TrueCrypt has plummeted into a cloud of mystery and conspiracy.

    Hmpf. Born under a cloud (SecureStar claimed copyright to the source code) and died under a cloud (WindozeXP). TrueCrypt announced in April and on SourceForge that it was dun.

    WARNING: Using TrueCrypt is not secure as it may contain unfixed security issues

    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. You should migrate any data encrypted by TrueCrypt to encrypted disks or virtual disk images supported on your platform.http://sourceforge.net/projects/truecrypt/

    It does give one pause, but I've managed to switch over to BitLocker even though I don't think it's nearly as user-friendly (and is only provided as part of the 65-bit Windows packages)

    Most of my in-house security is handled by Predator, I don't need secured files so much as a pc that's secured while I'm not there to attend it.
