Since exploits manipulate software separate from itself(the game), it becomes more sensitive and complicated to find and handle the data. Lets imaging that in v1.0.0 of a game, the health value is stored at location X. Your exploit then change the value of X appropriately. When the game updates to v1.0.1, the health value may have been moved. If the exploit is still programmed to change the value of X, the game may crash because the health location was moved to another location.
