Hacker - Truecrypt alternatives

You should be aware that TrueCrypt development was no longer maintained/updated  since 2014.

http://www.alessandromazzanti.com/2013/08/usb-create-usb-encrypted-with-truecrypt.html

Several security bugs have been not resolved.

You fan review this article about some alternatives that I summarize them in this article too.

https://www.comparitech.com/blog/information-security/truecrypt-is-discoutinued-try-these-free-alternatives/,.


Here they are Truecrypt alternatives (from my side I use, normally, 2. and 7. options):
  1. VeraCrypt You can find a full list of improvements and corrections that VeraCrypt made on TrueCrypt here. It is open source and free.
  2. Bitlocker no encrypted containers ability and not open source.
  3. DiskCryptor supports encryption of external devices including hard drives, USB drives, CDs, and DVDs
  4. CipherShed
  5. FileVault 2 Apple’s answer to Bitlocker, no encrypted containers ability and not open source.
  6. LUKS
  7. SafeHouse Explorer – 3.01 Portable

If you have problems to uninstall old sophos version or sophos with problems you can follow these steps:

  1. Uninstall any relation to Sophos AutoUpdate, Sophos Remote Management System and "Sophos Diagnostic Utility"
  2. If uninstallation ask for binaries you give him this path

    C:\ProgramData\Sophos\AutoUpdate\Cache\sau\sophos autoupdate.msi

    C:\Program Files\Sophos\AutoUpdate\sau\Sophos AutoUpdate.msi
  3. If net stop "sophos AutoUpdate Service"
  4. Stop any Sophs services
  5. Stop "almon.exe" process
  6. Delete this register key HKLM\Software\Sophos
  7. Start --> cmd
    sc delete savonaccesscontrol

    sc delete savonaccessfilter
    sc delete skmscan 
    sc delete savadminservice 
    sc delete savonaccess
  8. net stop "sophos AutoUpdate Service"
  9. sc delete "sophos AutoUpdate Service"
  10. If you get error 1060 (service is not installed) you can not consider it
  11. Create .reg file like in appendix
  12. Delete this folders:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Sophos\
  13. Restart Server (in my case it was not necessary)
  14. Reinstall Anvitivus

                            In case of less sophos services and differs from policies errors I followed this procedure

                            1.      On server/client you need to stop all sophos services (10 or 11)
                            2.      You must copy and overwrite all binaries from these paths:

                            \\xxxxxxx\SophosUpdate\CIDs\S005\SAVSCFXP

                            To  C:\Program Files (x86)\Sophos\AutoUpdate

                            3.      Reinstall AV from standard path as usually: 

                            \\xxxxxx\SophosUpdate\CIDs\S005\

                            Some months ago I changed company.

                            I would like sincerely thank my new company (PQE)for trust given to me since the beginning and during this period.

                            Some days ago I got confirm that my trial period was successfully outmoded.

                            I would like to "thank" too whom, in precedent company, worked hard to put me in condition that the only possible option was to change company ASAP.

                            Thanks to this situation  I finally found the courage to change company.

                            So this situation confirm assumption that, every difficulty, can be often an opportunity like in my case.
