    Damn

    So, if that turns out to be legitimate, what other alternatives do we have on Linux that works in a similar way? I need a tool that creates an encrypted file-based virtual drive as I am using it to encrypt USB thumbdrives that I may access on more than one machine.

    Do you have any idea how bad this is? This better be false/FUD because this is no laughing matter. Also my subscription to your premium service will also end. If i cannot trust you and you're just gaining bullshit clicks I'll tell everyone to never trust this sites information again.

    The development of TrueCrypt was ended in 5/2014 after Microsoft terminated
    support of Windows XP.
    There was planned support for Windows 8 as of 2014-05-24, or so says Wikipedia.

    Inside source package, Readme.txt there is also the same warning:

    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.

    This seems very fish.

    I'm going to guess it's BS and the page has just been hijacked. The page uses a redirect, rather than actually being on the website, and it has no reasoning.

    The binaries posted on the page also possibly contain malware.
