We quite often receive alarms from F-Secure FW saying its blocking malicious traffic on tcp 137 from source address VLAN/subnet broadcast address. (10.140.XXX.255)  as both source and destination address.
Does anybody know what can be the reason for this and how to find the source?

Odd, could be an attack, track down the source mac-address to see what switch port this system is connected to. i would have a clser look at this system
