It has to do with the main Dev he personally said posted this:
Posted at AAO forums by Johnny:
The latest version of assist include a new anti-cheat feature that allowed us to search peoples computers for cheats or hacks, We have now come to realise that this was unwise and could compromise players security or privacy so the system has been shut down to prevent any further risk to players. there was no trojan it was all done within the assist client.
No body’s computer is at risk and no body’s personal information has been compromised.
The 2.5Assist project has now been shutdown and will not return.

A couple of the other Devs expounded on it and they said it was a grey area but I was thinking it fell in the same category as PB/EvenBalance for TOS.
