No court in America would believe that distributing encrypted content along with its password and instructions for decryption is an effective access control.
This is actually how most DRM systems "work"; the only difference is that the instructions are in machine code.
"The Egyptian authorities now loyal to Bonaparte also called on the common people of Cairo to stop showing curiosity and talking about "the affairs of state" and ... Putting public discussion of the affairs of state off limits to ordinary subjects was an old Ottoman tactic of control, and its use by the French Republic, standard-bearer of the Rights of Man, as jarringly incongruous."
the archive contains a README file crediting the hacker/cracker/griefer collective.
Why is this being distributed in in True Crypt encrypted format, in stead of plain text?
Why does each downloader have to type in a password?
Is this a false flag to get anyone who talks about the encrypted contents to also be implicitly admitting that they "circumvent[ed] access control[s]", a violation of the DMCA or other "anti-hacking" laws?
I'd stay well away from this, it might be a sting.
