A more accurate definition of cheese in Starcraft 2:
A cheese strategy is simply a high risk/high reward tactic which aims to win a game with little strategic effort, and relies on the failure of the opponent to properly react. A cheese strategy will often leave the cheeser at a significant disadvantage should the cheese fail.
Perhaps the most popular example is the photon cannon rush, in which photon cannons are built in close proximity to the enemy base so that they can be used offensively. If spotted early, the cannon rush will likely fail and the defending player will have a significant economic advantage, exemplifying the high risk/high reward nature of cheese.
A cheese strategy does NOT necessarily take advantage of imbalances in the game, and most cheeses are easily countered if they are spotted early and there is adequate time to prepare (hence why many cheeses rely on poor scouting).
Cheese is often regarded as "cheap" or "dirty" play, as the player cheesing does not try to counter their opponent or adjust their strategy. "All-in" strategies are good examples of this.
Below are some more examples of cheeses. Note how each cheese strategy takes advantage of "common" flaws in the defending player's build/strategy. If the flaw is not present, the cheese will likely be countered and lose:
Worker Rush (Drones, Probes, or SCV only) - Takes advantage of poor reaction and micro (the defending player must use their workers)
Early All-in (Zerglings/Drones, Zealots/Probes, Marines/SCVs) - Takes advantage of poor scouting, poor early defense, and improper reaction (If the defending player fails to use their workers, the cheese will be effective)
Proxy Rush (Gateways or Barracks near enemy base) - Takes advantage of poor scouting and poor early defense.
Dark Templar Rush - Takes advantage of lack of detection
Void Ray Rush - Takes advantage of lack of anti-air and/or lack of early pressure
Cannon Rush - Takes advantage of poor scouting
Reaper Rush - Takes advantage of poor scouting and early defense
Marine Rush - Takes advantage of poor scouting and early defense
Planetary Fortress Rush - Takes advantage of poor scouting
Zergling Rush (6, 7, or 10 pool are most common) - Takes advantage of poor scouting, improper reaction (Vs. 6/7 pool, you must user workers), and poor early defense
There are others, these are just the most common.

Cheese has been a big problem in Dallas, TX recently.
In the multiplayer PC game Starcraft 2, cheese is a tactic or strategy that is considered to be overpowered and is not sportsmanship-like. It is used in a derogatory fashion by players, Youtube commentators, and tournament announcers in South Korea.
The exact classification of cheese can vary, but most forms of cheese are obnoxious "in your face" tactics that annoy the opponent and lead to victory within the first 5 minutes of the game. In general, it is impossible to counter a cheese tactic unless you scout the opponent's base. Most cheese strategies do not use the game's intended "combat" units. I.e. the SCV construction unit is intended to harvest minerals, not lead an assault into the enemy base.
Cheese is most commonly seen in the lower brackets of Starcraft 2. Most lower bracket players do not scout and leave themselves vulnerable to cheese. As players become more adept at the game, they begin scouting and will move into higher brackets.
The newer forms of Cheese such as the SCV bunker rush were first used in official South Korean tournaments. The strategies were then posted onto Youtube and copied by American Starcraft players.
A few popular cheeses are:
Void Ray Rush
SCV Bunker Rush
Planetary Fortress Rush
Photon Cannon Rush

Guy 2: He only won because he cheese'd!
