I had the same problem. What may be the problem is the tiny water drip hole that feeds the drip tray is blocked with coffee sludge. Open the machine and remove the dump bucket, drip tray, and the brew group. Behind the brew group is a flat plastic piece which has a small drip hole at the bottom of it. This may be blocked which causes the water that should go into the drip tray to build up and overflow inside the machine running onto the countertop. Clean out the area behind the little drip hole and the hole itself. This should cure it.

besides descaling you need to lube the brew group, especially the bit that accepts the group nozzle. You might have a leaking boiler too, 6 years is pretty good for a vienna.
Remove the brew group and look for the two red o-rings on teh brass bit, smear some lube on it, they might need replacing by now, but luckily they aren't too expensive and readily available albeit a bit tricky to install, a good light and some patience is very important.

This may just be a cleaning issue. I have had this alot. If you open the machine and take the contraption out of the inside (the hopper thing). You should clean this of course but the problem is behind that on the back wall of the machine. There is a diagonal slot. at the bottom of the slot is a drainage port that is supposed to take the water and send it to the tray. but you will probably find that this is all clogged up with coffee. You need to clean the coffee out, I recommend pipe cleaners and Qtips and patience to get it out. You will know it is clean when you can squirt water into the bottom of the diagonal slot and it will flow out of a little port just below it (where it goes to the tray).
How to keep this from happening again. Most likely given the description of the beans (too wet), your grinder is set too fine. You can adjust the grinder when it is running and you should adust it to a higher number. Its recommended to be on 8 and you may need to go to 10 or 11, ( you have to experiment with it). I only recently realized that my own grinder was set at too low of a number and it was causing a recurrence of this leakage issue.

There are a lot of things that can cause the machine to leak.
You could have a fitting or tube that is broken.
You boiler could be leaking and needs to be replaced.
You could have a hose connection that has come loose.
You could have a bad seal at a connection.
Until you get inside you will not know? You might want to have someone look at it for you.
Scale is one of the major causes for machines to start leaking. Make sure that your water hardness is set on 4, so you descale more often than not enough, to prevent leakage in the boiler.

SOURCE: leaking coffee grounds and water
There should be a small amount of coffee residue and about an oz. of water going into the drip tray. This is the pressure relief process, when the machine finishes the coffee making. If it didn't release the pressure thhis way you could have an explosion of coffee when it cycles back.
