    Default Whole disk encryption can be compromised with infected bootloader

    In her article, Joanna Rutkowska discussed how a full disk encryption (by means of TrueCrypt in particular but can also be applicable to DiskCryptor and PGP WDE) can be compromised by infecting its bootloader.



    If you are making use of full disk encryption, then this is definitely a must read for you - Evil Maid goes after TrueCrypt!

    The comment by Bruce Schneier on the subject is a good read as well - "Evil Maid" Attacks on Encrypted Hard Drives.
