They DO take measures to address it. The forums are full of people complaining they got banned, MSs forum is full of people that got banned.
Just make sure 100 percent that they are boosting , then report them and move on.
No company can prevent boosters no matter how much they try. Even without tac inserts people will still boost.
They ban people permanently off XBL for something as simple as making your Avatar blue. They just get banned, make a new Gamertag and do it all over again.
Only REAL way I can consider that WILL get something done is make the children pay for their own XBL account. Then when they get banned they can kiss their own 60 bucks goodbye and have to pay all over again.
I would be appalled if IW banned anybody for using a glitch their QA team missed. That's on them, not the people that did any of the glitches. Also it's not like IW intentionally was like, "Hey let's include this glitch for unlimited prestige tokens guys, it'll be hilarious!"
Ummm. There is a reason why they made you sign an agreement that you wont use any glitch you found. It puts the pressure on you.
There is no such thing as glitch free software.
You also agreed to THIS....(caps by MS not by me)

And the key point here....Do not exploit game vulnerabilities or glitches.
This has nothing to do with if its right or wrong. You agreed to not break the rules. You violate the policy you agree to and they can ban you. This is not a public random issue such as buying a bag of potato chips. ( BTW If I was told the price on the bag was 99 cents and it WAS higher, the manager still can tell you to pay the correct price if caught. If I dont agree with it I can refuse to stop shopping there, but he still has the rights to correct me on the price. The manager might be an ass but he still runs the store and makes the rules. He can do anything he feels is right INCLUDING refusal to sell you anything.)
But back to the real issue This is a private service that you agreed to the rules of. You did not agree then you cannot belong to part of their club. As a moderator once said you can buy a ticket but it doesnt buy you the right to run around naked thru the amusement park.
If you failed to read the terms or just didnt want to you still signed to the fact that you did SAY you read them. If you didnt read them then you lied and you are at fault.
So lets say you are a software developer, and one person cracks it so that no one has to buy your software anymore . Are you going to blame yourself that someone glitched your code to get it for free and you spent 10 million dollars to invent software that only sold to one person ? Or are you going to take those theives to court ? And dont say you wont sell it til the code is unbreakable because that will never happen. Even the highest price software out their is vulnerable to a crack or a keygen.
And BTW MS and Activision ban people daily for using exploits in their software, yet not a single person has ever been able to take them to court.
Heres an example
And one just for cheating
