I'm not sure how they hacked into the game but doing that and gaining access will result in a ban.

As far as I understood it's sadly not terribly hard to hack into the game to access different features, this is due to a flaw in the anti-cheat engine implemented in the game.  Basically all you have to do is manipulate the packages sent to the server from your client before it reaches the server, by doing so you can make the server think you have way more rights/are one of the admins/server owners. I'll look more into this today, who knows there is some tweaking possible by us/the server owners to make it less likely for cheaters and hackers to acquire these rights.

tl;dr. Downloading the hacks for 7dtd is pretty easy, just a replacement of the .dll file. Bypassing EAC is the hard part but far from impossible. Maybe it's possible to layer a personal anti-cheat engine over the EAC to make it more secure? I honestly don't know how much freedom you have as server owner in 7dtd or if it's even possible within the game. Seeing as it runs on Unity (if I'm not mistaken) it shouldn't be terribly difficult to manipulate it..
