Privacy, Security, Encryption

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.

Reading between the lines (and making things up as I go along), does a move to Switzerland not suggest they are moving away from external influence to somewhere more respectful of privacy?

Of course I could point out that the Swiss' record has not been impeccable in this respect in recent times...?
