So what do we use to replace TC as a multi-platform solution for things like external drives? There are many decent products, but TC seemed to be alone as far as OpenSource tools capable of running on Windows, Linux and Mac. Suggestions?
The SourceForge page contained a new version of the program that was certified with the official TrueCrypt private signing key. That suggested the page warning TrueCrypt isn't safe wasn't a hoax posted by hackers who managed to gain unauthorized access. Or it suggests that the cryptographic key that certifies the authenticity of the app has been compromised. In either case, it's a good idea for TrueCrypt users to pay attention and realize that it may soon be necessary to move to a new crypto app. Ars will continue to cover this unfolding development as more information becomes available.
"The development of TrueCrypt was ended in 5/2014 after Microsoft terminated support of Windows XP." It goes on to list migration instructions. Is this the end for our beloved open source, multi-platform crypto solution? The question is what now? Planned forks? Any recommendations for freely available, open and multi-platform solutions that will allow for moving storage devices from Linux -> Windows -> Mac?"
Like others here, I was invited. I started watching their intro video with two of the least compelling and homely promotional staff ever droning on and on and ZZzzzz...
By the time I woke up some time later, I had forgotten what I was doing and never went back. Perhaps they should have hired Godaddy's or Budwieser's publicists.
Until you posted it here that is and basement-dwellers everywhere scurried off to launch their own versions. Now a new problem... searching all the competing mentor finders. Now if only someone built a meta-search to search them all...
Takes me back to the Vista launch ads as the only word that comes to mind is "Wow".
