For about two weeks now it seems that a botnet is attacking one of my Gallery2 installations in order to either comment spam me or to solve the captchas:

Sadly Gallery2 seems to not offer the configuration option to disable comments for non-authorized/logged-in users, just only to disable captchas for some users/groups, but apparently disabling captchas for guests seems totally wrong for me.
Currently I'm blocking the hosts with an iptables rule whenever I see an attacking host by accident, but I guess that there should be a better option...
