   My suspicion is that either they were hacked (and had their key 
stolen), or that they were ordered to shutdown and recommend Microsoft's 
(presumably backdoored) BitLocker as a replacement.  BitLocker's 
enterprise documentation makes me *incredibly* suspicious that it is 
susceptible to monitoring by third-parties.

   Pardon my tinfoil hat.
