    Hi Samaj,

    the above log indicates that there might be a possible computer which may be scanning for FIN Packets (a type of TCP Flag).

    A FIN scan is a type of Port Scan to detect whether specific ports are open/closed on a target machine and it can be used to attack the target.

    I would recommend you to check on the source of the FIN Scan (you can see this in the firewall logs) and investigate further.

    Note: sometimes this can be a false positive but it's always better to investigate and double check.
