I am +1 on the idea of fixing this in the shipped configuration
(disallow root logins). the way I've gotten rid of the bots is to run a
script called "denyhosts" that does a good job of things once configured
by blocking any host that fails a login 3 times in a row. it's slick :)

Yah. I am well aware of denyhosts, and I see it in extras, but if sshd
is being shipped on my default with the default port, hostdeny should
also be setup by default.
