ICMP is defined in webopaedia as
Short for Internet Control Message Protocol, an extension to the Internet Protocol (IP) defined by RFC 792.
ICMP supports packets containing error, control, and informational messages. The PING command, for example, uses ICMP to test an Internet connection.
Although I do not use Norton, my firewall is configured to 'allow' Echo request.
Based on the above, looks like you were 'PINGED' by the Asia Pacific Network out of Australia.
post back if you need any more information.
