IEEE AMSS Taggant System will shut down on 31 July 2018

May 5th, 2018 :: 2 comments

We have received the following email:

This letter is to notify you that the Taggant System, a component of the IEEE Anti-Malware Support Service (AMSS), will shut down on 31 July 2018. Taggants have not been adopted as much as we had expected. Too few are using the Taggant System to justify the cost of maintaining the Taggant System.
All Taggant-related email aliases and listservs will also be deleted on 31 July 2018. VMProtect Software has an active IEEE AMSS SPV License. Per the AMSS SPV License, IEEE may cease operation of AMSS or any of its component services at any time upon ninety (90) days written notice to all AMSS licensees.
We expect to make a decision on the Clean file Metadata eXchange (CMX) component of AMSS later this year.
Thank you for supporting AMSS. We regret any inconvenience this change in direction might cause you.
Please let me know if you have any questions.

So the Taggant System will be removed from the next version of VMProtect.
