OK, it's too early, but here goes.

These are only SYN packets aren't they? Don't you need something which
has completed the TCP handshake before you can write a signature for

What if you get a box, something like http://nepenthes.mwcollect.org/
maybe, to reply to the SYN? That should you get you more info, maybe
even a malware binary.

Have you seen any IRC traffic from this machine?
