[警告] TrueCrypt 中止开发,请勿下载最新版本

The website of popular drive-encryption software TrueCrypt has been ripped up and replaced with a stark warning to not use the crypto-tool. It’s also distributing a new version of the software, 7.2, which appears to have been compromised.

流行的驱动器级加密软件 TrueCrypt 已经破产,并被替换为一个严重的警告,要求用户不要再使用 TrueCrypt 加密数据。同时开发人员也提供了 7.2 版(只能做解密操作),这似乎意味着该软件已被沦陷。

It’s feared the project, run by a highly secretive team of anonymous developers, has been hijacked by unknown parties. The easy-to-use data-protecting utility is favored by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden and his journo pals, as well as plenty of privacy-conscious people.

看起来,这些高度隐秘的开发人员,已经被某个组织劫持。TrueCrypt 曾被 爱德华斯诺登 和他的朋友,以及热衷于保障隐私的用户所亲睐。

We ran the executable in a virtual machine so that you don’t have to, and on Windows 8.1 it was blocked by the SmartScreen feature, suggesting it may contain malware. Launching it on an older system immediately displayed the “warning” message before installation proceeded, and the dropped executables contained the above quoted text.

Windows 8.1 的安全筛选器阻止了用户下载新版 TrueCrypt。在旧系统上运行安装程序也将在安装前显示警告信息。
