    How long do you wait before reporting a large and embarassable organization has a seriously misconfigured setup.

    I sent and email to webmaster and postmaster there, probably the bit bucket actually, but how long should I wait before posting here and emailing El Reg and the like?

    Is Monday too soon?

    I see no reason to wait. You might as well send it as soon as possible. I also would like to hear some more details on the situation.

    Tell me who they are and I will deal with them :D

    Honestly, I see no reason to wait. Better tell the world and force them to change instead of having a hacker break in and destroy everything.

    Its a part of the US government. Going to WWW.xxxxxx.gov yields a Novell Netware config page.

    It seems they have it fixed now so I will say.
