I don't get it. Why would they go through the trouble of making a third-party executable when that information could be already gleaned either via an in-game add-on or an already established interface into Blizzard's databases, i.e. the armoury. It seems like they've overcome a significant technical challenge (reading complex structured data about your character by examining a running copy of the WoW process) that explicitly violates the TOS for little to no benefit.

Am I missing something? Are they able to get important information that they are not able to get through the standard two mechanisms? If not, then that does sound very suspicious.
