It's official: “TrueCrypt is not secure”; Support for decade-old crypto program pulled
OMG… I don't even know what to say beyond that. What does everyone suggest as an alternative to TrueCrypt?
Results from phase one of the audit released last month revealed no evidence of any backdoors and the people who spearheaded the TrueCrypt audit said they had no advanced notice but the latest version, signed with the TrueCrypt shows diffs that indicate devs saying portions of code not safe. 

"WARNING: Using TrueCrypt is not secure as it may contain unfixed security issues," text in red at the top of TrueCrypt page on SourceForge states. The page continues: "This page exists only to help migrate existing data encrypted by TrueCrypt. The development of TrueCrypt was ended in 5/2014 after Microsoft terminated support of Windows XP. Windows 8/7/Vista and later offer integrated support for encrypted disks and virtual disk images. Such integrated support is also available on other platforms (click here for more information). You should migrate any data encrypted by TrueCrypt to encrypted disks or virtual disk images supported on your platform." 

“TrueCrypt is not secure,” official SourceForge page abruptly warns
Support for decade-old crypto program pulled, touching off Internet firestorm.
