Purdue only calls it a "visualisation",not a simulation


No, they did both:
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Researchers at Purdue University have created a simulation that uses scientific principles to study in detail what likely happened when a commercial airliner crashed into the World Trade Center's North Tower on Sept. 11, 2001.

The simulation could be used to better understand which elements in the building's structural core were affected, how they responded to the initial shock of the aircraft collision, and how the tower later collapsed from the ensuing fire fed by an estimated 10,000 gallons of jet fuel, said Mete Sozen, the Kettelhut Distinguished Professor of Structural Engineering in Purdue's School of Civil Engineering.

It took about 80 hours using a high-performance computer containing 16 processors to produce the first simulation, which depicts how the plane tore through several stories of the structure within a half-second, said Christoph M. Hoffmann, a professor of computer science and co-director of the Computing Research Institute at Purdue.

From the Purdue project page:
The goal of our team was to produce a visualization of the September 11, 2001 attacks on the Pentagon and World Trade Center. The immediate motivation for the project was to understand the behavior of the building under the impact. The longer term motivation was to establish a path for producing high-quality visualizations of large scale simulations. The first challenge was managing the enormous complexity of the scene to fit within the limits of state-of-the art simulation software systems and supercomputing resources. The second challenge was to integrate the simulation results into a high-quality visualization.

That's what I was thinking too. 192.168.1.100 is one of the 254 IP addresses you're apt
to get from just about any home computer plugged into a home router.
It's an inside job alright.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

that is correct.

and the malware users write their software to provide the IP address of the users modem to conceal their path.

they may have launched the cyber attack through peer to peer connections of hundreds and use the auto assuming program to simply show the users internal IP address.

the origin however was Poland and anyone with any brains would have known that my warning would be for malware that presented itself using one of the internal IP addresses.
