You need to be a little more specific to enable people to give the best advice - what 'normal' firewall do you have?
Did you check in 'Add/Remove Programs' to see if PCAnywhere was listed?
I'd suggest that the message means the DoS attack came from a spoofed non-routable (local) IP address and therefore Norton has no further information about the source of the attack. This is a guess on my part.
I would also suggest that the attack was aimed at your ISP (or some computer using your ISP) rather than at your specific computer.
I don't know what advice you have had previously or your level of expertise so I will just point out these basic security steps:
You need several types of protection to secure your system on the internet these days:
1. Anti-virus; 2. Firewall; 3. Anti-Spyware; 4. Windows Updates.
