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 saw a show related to this not long ago that demonstrated present-day capability to display images a test subject was picturing in their mind. The images weren't exactly HD quality, but basic shapes were reliable. The research was explained as a means to give blind people sight by using visual sensors and encoding the images directly to the brain. Not only that but also the ability for people `see` things outside of the normal human-viewable spectrum. And this wasn't blowing the lid off anything secret!

So "they" are developing technology to read/view your thoughts, and literally see things a normal person can't. Think of how that might work in a military application, spy, espionage, etc.
