Ability to find issues containing SSN

So one of our departments who uses JIRA has been apparently adding SSN's to the description of tickets (don't ask why)...this is obviously a no-no to our security department, and I have been tasked with finding a way to filter for this.  Is there a way (probably using script runner or other form of advanced JQL) that will allow to search for a string that contains 9 consecutive integers or $xxx-xx-xxxx or something so I can filter for all tickets that MIGHT contain an SSN in the description field?

Have you tried something like this in JQL: description ~ "???-???-????" OR description ~ "?????????"

It's not as good as digits, but it might get you started.

The only problem is that ? doesn't denote whether it's a letter or number, so it doesn't really work.
