Do nothing. Are your emails random-proof?
Can you guarantee a simple algorithm can't generate such emails? Are
they +20 chars long, like
1212dfdfdnere0-psankdncxzcoxzicczppp-a at hotmail.com ?
If they aren't, sorry, but any script kiddie can create a perl script to
generate your "secret" address.

s> Hello all,
s> The recent thread on the exposed data containing hospital records
s> made me think to ask something here.
s> I have recently received spam to several email addresses created
s> explicitly and solely for filing my US federal taxes online through
s> an internet tax filing system. The emails I received are tied to
s> four separate filings by four separate people on a COMPLETELY
s> unrelated subject through an IP address managed by a completely
s> different person than the entity that these addresses were given
s> I've already asked the tax filing company for more information
s> about any breaches they may have suffered and what other
s> information may have been exposed. They asked for the source
s> emails, which I provided, and I have not heard back. This was over
s> a week ago.
s> What should I do? What would you do?
s> I'm not up on current legislation (I'm a part-time security guy),
s> but would this fall under HIPAA (one of the people filing is
s> disabled, that data was included on the online form), Sarbanes
s> Oxley, GLBA, California Breach Act (I'm in CA)... or anything else?
s> Since it looks like they're not going to even respond to me, I'd
s> like to nail them to the wall.
