What are you doing/changing about your SSH configurations to reduce
the possibility of these attacks finding any kind of hole in the
OpenSSH software (that's what I run, so that's the only version I'm
particularly concerned about) ?  Are you doing anything at all?

Attacks on my system seemed to be restricted to root, so I set the
'PermitRootLogin without-password' option, so that no root logins using
a password were possible - must be RSA key.  I also switched to
non-standard port.
