Strange packet followed by malformed Ethernet frames

Hello list,

I have seen in my network a strange packet (this is not a DMZ, it is
an internal network) with the following flags set: FIN, SYN, RST, ACK,
URG, ECN, CWR. And then, a LOT of malformed frames.

This caused a cut in the network service (about 3000 sessions died).

Could this be an attack? If so, how can I detect / hinder this?

Thanks in advance,
Rodrigo.
