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.

Especially when you take the first letters in the first sentence "TrueCrypt is Not Secure Anymore" it looks like the webpage is a warrant canary.
