This is bound to happen, it's not just the cheat makers, but the actual players who cheat who are also at risk of serious prosecution. In my professional world many who work think that only the boss can get sued, but the reality is that any employee who is negligent can also get sued.

I don't know what the word 'treathing' means that you used.

Do you have a link to the article?

There's a couple of bans on a guy named Woopie, here's one:

GUID 2411d7ad3ed0cfdcafd42d0749d121aa
Game Call of Duty 4
Global This GUID is globally banned by EvenBalance

Alias & User IP
Alias (3) User IP (2)

from Netherlands

this is linked to another guy named xWoopie also in the Netherlands for BFBC2, so watch out for him... oh wait, nvm, you don't have to worry because he's in JAIL!

My guess he was pissed off about getting banned, but did the stupid thing of not acknowledge that what he was doing (hacking) was criminal and therefore tough luck.
