Some more I found how PB is working :
"Now how did we manage to do that? Quite easyÖ Punkbuster - desperate to get private cheats detected, thought it might be a good idea to randomly sniff any PCís physical (!!!) memory. Basically itís acting like a virus-scanner trying to find blacklisted sequences of bytes found in cheat files. Which is not even a bad idea - itís just been used badly. Give a monkey a gun and he shoots himself. Donít blame the gunÖ"

Here the story ( by a translator ):

netCoder, a group of developers of cheats rotting Punkbuster. To discern cheats, Punkbuster scanne the physical memory of your PC by searching some chaines characters being supposed to be used by cheats.
netCoder identifies some of these character strings: they did not have more than to go on IRC and to write some lines so that the chain of character meets in the memory of all guys linked on the channel.
Those who played so get banned from servers for "cheating".
