[liberationtech] Not an Emergency: Has TrueCrypt.org been Hijacked?

Hi there,

I accessed the truecrpyt site less than 24 hours ago and it went to the true crypt site i have been familiar with.

We are about to finalise a dig safety curriculum, so it'll be great to get some feedback from the info-sec community about this as soon as possible.  

Thanks in advance, Sam

BitLocker's enterprise documentation makes me *incredibly* suspicious that it is susceptible to monitoring by third-parties.
