The webpage of popular encryption software TrueCrypt now displays a message that the software is insecure due to many flaws and users should migrate to other tools. The webpage offers a new version that offers only decryption to help users to migrate to other products. The withdrawal of TrueCrypt triggered speculation about the true reason of the move ranging from hack to malware attack. It is also possible that the independent audit of encryption algorithms used by TrueCrypt discovered some serious security flaws. It should be noted however, that the first part of the audit of source code did not uncover any serious flaws.
