The Mystery Of TrueCrypt's Disappearance

The internet is abuzz after this cryptic message appeared on the (redirected) website. No big deal or time to panic?

Sometime on the 28th of May, 2014, the anonymous developers of TrueCrypt mysteriously pulled the plug on their popular encryption software. They shut down the website and redirected visitors to a simple page hosted by SourceForge, with a disturbing warning: WARNING: Using TrueCrypt is not secure as it may contain unfixed security issues.
