The popular online tool Sharkscope has been added to the list of software which can not be used at

Previously players were able to go to the website and check the sit and go performances of those sat at their table. Now PokerStars has stopped the information being disclosed to Sharkscope, rending it impossible to do the same.

Sharkscope appears to go against the principles set out at, which states that "tools and services that profile your opponents, but make use of only information which you have accumulated by your own play." are allowed. Sharkscope uses data which player personally don't gather, making the site something which 'Stars feels damages the integrity of their online games.
