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.

The only practical use for personal encryption is for protecting the data on a lost or stolen laptop. You'd have to be insane to think that your secrets are really safe from governments.
