TrueCrypt Has Critical Security Flaws

You may remember last year, the developers of TrueCrypt abandoned it, saying it wasn’t secure and suggesting no one use it. There wasn’t a lot of explanation at the time. Well now we have more details: TrueCrypt has critical security flaws. “Google Project Zero researcher James Forshaw found two ‘privilege elevation’ holes in the popular software that would give attackers full access to your data. Worse yet, TrueCrypt was audited earlier this by a crowdfunded team of iSec security researchers and found to be error-free.”
