On Friday, December 13, 2013, the ANR Survey and Registration tool was spammed by an outside entity. The page they targeted includes a routine that sends confirmation emails to people who complete the credit card payment process embedded in the survey tool.
The outside entity was blocked, and additional layers of security have been added to this page to prevent it from happening in the future.
No credit card information is accessible from this page, or our database. This information is processed separately by UC Davis, and our application merely receives confirmation when a payment is successfully made. No credit card information was compromised.
We apologize for any concern or confusion caused by this incident. If you experience any anomalies with the survey tool, please let us know immediately by filing a ticket in the ANR Tracker at https://ucanr.edu/tracker.
