Over the past 24 hours the website for TrueCrypt (a very widely used encryption solution) was updated with a rather unusually styled message stating that TrueCrypt is "considered harmful" and should not be used.

Very odd story. Lots of little red flags going up all over the place.

I don't disagree with you, I'm sure it's very tit-for-tat. These days, that kind of collusion is inescapable though. Would Apple's FileVault be any more secure than BitLocker? Was TrueCrypt even really secure? I'm beginning to wonder if the only truly secure data storage is in our heads; if we don't ever put pen to paper, voice to microphone, or fingers to keyboard, maybe it will stay secure then. Maybe...
