    after discusing with account/tech support they released some information on how they detect wether or not your botting.

    they search what was running on your RAM during the report. this means say your using a bot for another game and you playing wow by yourself. if that bot is a registered "cheat" and can be altered for the use for wow, you will be banned. this also means if you have 2+ accounts and are botting on an account while you say raid on your main account. if your botted account gets reported and checked they will see that another account is active on you IP adress and investigate it aswell and see that the "cheating program" is active / running in the background and result in both accounts being banned...... this being said be carefull botting, just because your not botting on your main account doesnt mean it cant be banned.

    This was as i heard once a long time ago, but is forbidden by law, Blizzard has no right what so ever to scan your computer, this is illegal.

    Just because they have it in there, doesn't mean they can get away with it.
    In a pure legal sense, yea they could, but won't, and haven't.

    That'd be like selling you a piece of software and having my own custom code to steal information from your computer, and having it hidden somewhere deep in the EULA/TOS that I can send any information from your PC to mine.
    Legally (if worded correctly) everything is there to have me get away with it, but that doesn't mean it'll hold up in court.

    You cannot Agree to give up certain rights. Ever. Period. Not possible. No matter how tricky and how smart the lawyers that wrote Blizzards EULA are, there is no way, period, that a user could agree to allow Blizzard to scan their computers at will. Federal law prohibits it.
