Major problem with contact form and captcha getting attacked

Here is the response from my server. (Remember I am only quoting their response.)

----------------------------------------
How old are these scripts would be my first question?

I believe I saw 2010 on many.
It's possible hackers are attempting to break in through some known
exploit in this script set.

Personally I'm not seeing that the contact form is doing these folks much
favors.
Why not just set a text only page with reference to phone numbers and
email contact address (saving everyone a lot of time)?

Nowadays most people know how to type email addresses (not like the old
days when we first started and felt people were so dumb they needed a form
with a submit button. :)

I've added some log info bottom of this email, but here's the thing. When
the script was bringing down the server, there were only a few connections
as well. This leads me to believe there is something wrong in the
scripting somewhere.
