Do you know if the spammer was able to collect any survey information? Our survey includes e-mail addresses and phone numbers.

Yes, some of the information may have been accessible to this attack. This would have been limited to any fields that were identified in the ‘Post Survey’ page.  
Please check your post survey page to see the information that may have gone out. At this point we have blocked the attack, but please let us know if you have a survey that would respond with sensitive information via the post survey page.  
Again, it is important to note that no credit card information was made available.

Hi Peggy. This is related to the issue; however, your card was not charged again.

so, do we know the extent or pattern of the invasion ?  
e.g. were certain dates or lists targeted ?  
can we find out which users recd these erroneous spam e-mails ? basically, who should be notified.

We're working on getting this information together and will notify survey administrators after compiling and reviewing the data.

Thank you for this information. I received a strange message from a survey participant - from a survey that did not include payment by credit card, and was deactivated several months ago. I deleted the message, but the survey respondent had received the "post-survey" email confirmation message from that survey, along with a line saying something like "your credit card has been charged". She was just notifying me of the error.
