DiskCryptor Softpedia Review

P.S. should we make a separate discussion for DiskCryptor (or maybe there is one and I couldn't find it)?

Some news on resurrecting (or whatever) TrueCrypt:

CipherShed (https://ciphershed.org/about/) is a program that's claiming to be forking TrueCrypt and continuing development. It's still in the development stage, but here's what they said about the license situation, although I'm obviously not 100% clear that the original license allows forking: https://wiki.ciphershed.org/License What license they're going to end up using looks like LGPL, but it's currently a bit unclear.

More on this plan here: https://forum.ciphershed.org/viewtopic. ... cense#p289 ...

Assuming they actually go with LGPL for the license, I'm very encouraged by this.

I posted something to the website about portability and admin rights in the hopes that brings it up with the DEVs: https://forum.ciphershed.org/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=67

VeraCrypt is allegedly based on TrueCrypt's source code, so it isn't clear to me just how distinct the two products really are...

FTR, the latest news seem to exonerate TrueCrypt of any wrongdoing:



PS: compelling evidence is available to support the thesis that the software site demise was caused by US government takeover following criminal investigations...

FYI, here's a recent Ghacks.net review of CipherShed, highlighting its compatibility with TrueCrypt volumes:

I welcome the extra effort. Obviously TrueCrypt collapsed for unclear reasons so having two projects might mean it's legacy won't die. Both projects use the the same license (Apache) so it's entirely possible they could grow and improve in tandem.

Post-mortem update: Taken at face value, Atavist Magazine credits the creation of TrueCrypt to international cyber-criminal Paul Le Roux, whose apprehension apparently coincides with the takedown of the project page. For those interested, Le Roux exploits make for fascinating reading at:


And even after all the time passed over the project demise, Wikipedia's entry is still a sober account of the program's virtues:

Just the wikipedia page is totally insane: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paul_Le_Roux

Anyway if he really just yanked the program from a commercial entity, it sucks that he basically stole the code and gave it away with an open license. Still, I'm sort of glad he did just because so many people have benefited from a quality free security tool. God only knows how many stolen laptops had important financial info and other data kept secret thanks to that program. Still I'm not sure it outweighs the evil from what the article suggests is a multiple-murderer.

Just look them up on VirusTotal (I couldn't figure out how to do direct links).
