It means your maybe receiving a DoS (Denial of service) attack for a computer within your network. Are you running several computers on your home network/LAN? If so one may have a virus that is trying to flood you LAN with request in order to shut down you network connection. The attack is usally aimed at servers. Are you running a server? It could also be a false positive. Something on your LAN could be precived as a DoS but may not be. Are you running a firewall program? I recommend SyGate Personal Edition, which I use, or Zone Alarm to secure your affected computer. It will alert you to with computer is lauching the DoS, if in fact one is taking place. It is protection you should have at any rate.

FYI: The firewall programs will be a pain the first few days until you answer the alerts for the normal programs running. Once the firewall loggs you preferences this will slow down.

Let us know what you find.

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.

Have a look in the Tutorials section for ways to keep your system secure on the internet :

Hey Rimmer, I completely agree with you, but would add one more type of protection that is needed, and that is "Safe Behavior". As you know, a well protected computer's defenses can be defeated by a wrong click of the user, downloading something 'free' or visiting the wrong site, etc.
