Just want to know what it is !

This morning Firefox would not load any web pages while DSL status show that incoming connection was at maximum of my prescribed bandwith. Have to restart Firefox in order to access web page.
CPO showed that 1 high severity event. Details as follows:

Description: DDOS attack (ICMP Flood)
Duration: 39 seconds # of packets: 1189 # of attackers: 54
Attackers: … (listed a dozen of IP address )…
The firewall has switched to EMERGENCY mode.

Just want to know what actually is happening !
