Help Audit Truecrypt

Over the last couple of months Edward Snowden has shown us how intrusive governments has been. This has also raised questions such as how safe are you when using encryption software.

As Truecrypt is 1 of the more popular encryption solutions there is a vested interest for the NSA, GCHQ and other spy organisation in breaking the protection that these provide. There have also been suggestions that the NSA have attempted to coerce software developers in actively introducing backdoor’s into their software.

To date there has not been any large-scale security audits on the Truecrypt source code. Well this is about to change.

A team of people have started an Indiegogo Campaign.The campaign has already met the starting target however please do not let this influence your decision in backing the campaign. The more money pledged the better the results for the audit. The money will ensure that those carrying out the audit are properly compensated and funds are available to entice people in reporting bugs that they fund.

Be sure to back the Truecrypt Audit on Indiegogo.

Nirvana For Christmas Number 1

Some of you may remember that last year there was a campaign on Facebook to get Rage Against The Machine as the Christmas number 1. That campaign became a great success and thwarted last year’s X-Factor hijacking the charts as they usually do.

Well this year there is another campaign. This year’s campaign is to try and get Nirvana’s Smells Like Teen Spirit to the number 1 spot. This year the Christmas charts are actually on Christmas day so any copies of this song bought from now until 23:59 on December the 24th will count towards the campaign

I have bought my copy already. Have you?
