[sclug] SSH Worm?

Logcheck has spotted a lot of failed SSH login attempts using "obvious"
usernames on my home server.

Obviously I only allow logins via certain named accounts and only if
they have a certificate. I also keep my box up to date, so if there are
problems in SSL/SSH they will get fixed pretty quick.

Anyone else seen this kind of activity recently?
