Truecrypt, goodby security friend (now hosted!)

It seems that the Truecrypt Foundation dropped a bomb on the security community on April 14th 2014, releasing v7.2 of Truecrypt that was crippled to only being able to read encrypted data…. Well fortunatly I will be hosting 7.1a (the last fully functional Truecrypt version released) as soon as i have validated some unofficial downloads to the one I have installed from the official installer. I’ll update this post when possible.


Now you can download all the TrueCrypt binaries for Win/Linux below. The archive (7-zip) contains binaries and PDF documentation. All files have a PGP signature file and have been SHA256 hashed. Enjoy!
