@Dez, that makes sense, but what I don't understand is how do they get the result of their work if they spoof their IP? Wouldn't the acknowledgment that the guessed password is correct go to the impossible IP and never reach the attacker? How do they know they successfully logged in?

But what purpose would it serve to fake the IP? If the attacker uses an impossible IP, how can he find out if the attack succeeded or not, if he can't receive anything to this IP?
