Since I heard the first time about AMTSO (Anti Malware Testing Standards Organization), in one of the VB Conferences (I think two years ago), I asked myself whether or not this association makes sense. I’ve heard later on that Avira is also part of it.
But, I simply forgot about this issue.
I recently started to hear a lot of noise about this issue, saying that AMTSO represents only the interests of the AV Industry and not those of the user getting infected.
I don’t have yet an opinion, but as soon as I have one, I’ll post it 😉
Here are links with PROs and CONs arguments:
- Joint Blog By amtso
A related blog was published on the AVIEN blog
- The AMTSO Melee
Anti Malware Testing Standards Organization: a dissenting view
AMTSO: a serious attempt to clean up anti-malware testing; or just a great big con?
(please read the discussion thread there !!!)
