First off it is not illegal to cheat in videos games. cheating in video games does not equate to hacking. second depending on the way they modify the program depends on what kind of trouble they can get in if they distribute the cheat. If they distribute the game exe/dlls which the game company has copyright to then they can be charged with copyright infringement but that can only be done by the game company. If the program modifies in memory only they cannot get into trouble since the supreme court says that since memory is volatile it is not a form of copyright infringement. also cheats that do modify the exe if only used by the person who made it will not constitute copyright infringement. A TOS/EULA may be legally binding to certain extent but they tend of have things that cannot be supported by law also. they also are contractual agreements which is a civil dispute.

the best way to deal with cheaters is to have an active admin that bans the correct people.
