SSH probe attack afoot?

We're now getting hammered with the third round of ssh probes in the last
four days [one from CA, one from Brazil and one from Virginia]. I was
wondering: is there some virus or the like floating around now that
leaves an ssh-hammering zombie in its wake? Or is it just coincidental
that we have gotten three floods?
[the probes are just dozens of random-seeming login attempts with a bunch
of root-password-guesses interspersed]
