Does "Over limit" hurt?

I have three secured cards and two of them have been over their limit by $6 & $11 once. Is this hurting my score?
Current Score: 1/23/13 - EX:651 - EQ:679 - TU:628 - FICO:679
Goal Score: 700

Yep. If you don't have anything reporting over the limit, like a CO CC, or any current and active CC, and you take a CC over the CL and reports that way, you'll see a ding. IME, it was 10-20. YMMV on your credit. The damage completely goes away once the balance goes back in check. The 10-20 is aside from any util changes, IME.
