Software update: VeraCrypt 1.23

Version 1.23 of VeraCrypt has been released. VeraCrypt is a fork from TrueCrypt which stopped a while ago . With this open source encryption program, complete hard disks or partitions and virtual volumes, such as a file that is accessed as a partition, can be encrypted. VeraCrypt uses the original source code from TrueCrypt, but contains various improvements in security. Volumes created with TrueCrypt can be opened and converted from this version.
