I dont know if this is true, but it is a matter of a IT professional come here and explain us a few things: Is it possible for an information that is being passed from an IP to only another IP is caught in the way? I should be the only one available to see my cards and my opponent can only see his cards, but if he has a software that gives him the chance to see opponent's cards... It's the same as having access to the table cards before they are there. If this hands have a unique number in the whole site, this just means the random system will give them a number after they are delt, or those numbered hands are already created before are delt? I dont know in what to believe.

Any data send from a server passes several points on route to your IP where it is technically possible to snoop around, especially when the data is not encrypted.
But there are obstacles to make any use of it.
A clear understanding of the Pokerstars software and it's data transmission would be needed (you not only have to get the data but also make any sense of it and you have to get the right data, not the data from a table you are not playing at).
Access to a relevant pokerstars server or the closest routing point to install the snooper software (otherwise you can't make sure you get the data you need).
The snooper software would have to work fast (it has to snoop into the right data package from the thousands that are transmitted by the Pokerstars server, process the data and send the obtained information instantly, won't help if you get the info after you had to choose what to do at the table).
Whoever could accomplish that, would never make a video to post it on youtube.
The only reason to make such a video is that they weren't able to achieve the needed access and came up with the next best thing... convince all Pokerstars players, that are very simple minded, to install the snooper program on their computer by claiming it is a hack

hey even if this was true, and you have no such evidence- if you play all in or fold you are never dead- most of the time it will be a coin flip anyway, so what's the point seeing through cards, calling even when being favorite in terms of math- just to see you are outflopped...but yeah jokerstars like any other poker room isn't a very safe place to swim- it's full of sharks
