SSH Brute Force on Non-Standard Ports

One of the Handlers here at the ISC reports seeing an increase in SSH attacks on non-standard ports.  The traffic that is being seen is a brute force SSH attempt, and is more than just a connect, it is providing credentials in attempt to gain access.  If anybody is seeing similar SSH attempts on non-standard ports, we'd love to take a look at any logs or packet captures related to this activity.  These logs and packets can be reached at the "Contact Us" page.
