A number of sources, including DShield, have noticed an uptick on port 2323 TCP beginning around 3 weeks ago.
This is the scanner portion of the Mirai botnet scanning for IoT devices on both 23/TCP and 2323/TCP. There are a number of IoT devices that use port 2323/TCP as an alternate port for Telnet.
