Hacking is in the game, it's real, it's easy to pull off, and that is a simple fact.
The game has little protection besides the fact that it handles a lot of things server side. HOWEVER, that is clearly not enough.
The way I see it, GGG is turning a blind eye on some game aspects - but perhaps not of their own will.
It's normal for people to sometimes loose perspective. I bet they were pretty secure with their implementation of handling things server side, and that it would be enough to prevent most hacks.
However, some exploit was found, and they were caught off guard. Now the important thing is that they need not to ignore the issue, but fix it.
And to fix it, they of course have to acknowledge it and accept it exists.
Sometimes we refuse/do not want to believe stuff that goes against our logic, but that's not always the best approach.
Good thing the community helps put things into perspective.
EDIT: Also, hacks finding boxes are not really as harmful as duping or spawning items, but they still can make a dent in the games economy, which is already one-sided enough. And most know, PoE is all about economy.
DblEDIT: Also, showing the hacks on a forum post is not an issue, stop pretending it is. If you can't google "Path of Exile Hacks", you probably can't even get the hack to work to begin with.
Does that mean youre hacking? O_O
