I guess it's still more profitable to sue cheat creators than patching your broken holes in your game.
It is. You can never make a perfect game. They'll have find security holes. Hackers thrive on that. It's little d!ck energy.
If the publisher goes after the source instead and wins at the lawsuits, it might make others think twice about creating/distributing cheats/hacks. There is no way otherwise to really ever deter hackers/cheaters. They'll continue to do so and unless the developers work as though they're an anti-virus software company, releasing updates nearly weekly for their product, they can't keep up with the hacks/cheats that will be created.
Usually most developers will try to look good at launch and combat the hacks/cheats for weeks or a few months following release if it sold well. Once sales ticker down, they're out and on to the next project.
