This is UDP, The attacker source IP address can be changed when every new packet is sent
without affecting the end result.
The source IP address is not UDP; it's basic IP. The attacker can't simply choose the source IP address because whoever routes his IP packet into the Internet will not accept it if its source IP address is someone else's (and the attacker isn't trusted as a router for that someone).
You have to pull off a pretty high level hack of the Internet before you can spoof a source IP address.
