Spammer used our private email mod
We installed the private email mod to protect our listing of 500+ professionals from spammers while still allowing them to receive inquiries from the general public. Yesterday, a spammer (193.220.188.164) was able to email each of our members. It appears he was able to automate the form completion and submission.

"POST /cgi-bin/db/db.cgi HTTP/1.1" 200 4812 http://domain.com/...mp;send_email_form=1

I've banned the IP address, but is there anything else I can do to prevent this from happening again?
