Other than that, the most that's ever going to happen is the admin of the server you're on will ban you from that server or their network of servers, that's all. Same goes for VAC. They don't pay attention to screenshots, videos, etc, they just let VAC detect it.
Steam doesn't tell you when they update VAC, so as far as VAC goes, people will be banned if they're using a hack and VAC has updated. However, for PB, I'm not so sure.
I prefer the VAC solution over PB, as VAC doesn't announce there updates unlike PB does.
Let me clarify that, PB announces there updates via the PB Auto Updater. I think they announce it on there site as well though.
VAC's silent updates, and having you on the ban list even before the update is rather clever. So places can't immediately throw out a update after one member has been banned. Instead they're all banned, and then the places update there hacks.

Absolutely not, you must of never played Halo 2, was literally cheaters paradise. There are so many controller hacks and etc, its actually more wide spread I would say then PC cheats.
The main difference is that PC has public FREE cheats. Which is primarily used to grab more customers for the paid full out function hack.
Consoles don't really have that "free" option.Edited by dmasteR - 11/26/11 at 3:34pm
