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 tend to believe press-releases by security companies as much as a believe in Santa Clause and the Toothfairy.

Long believed unbreakable

And it still is. Stealing the key by abusing DMA and using custom hardware is pretty clever but they still haven't broken truecrypt.
