Personally I'd say that not disclosing the name of the institution was a wise choice. Imagine if they disclosed the name, well then all the hackers in the world know where there's a huge weakness in the credit card system. Before you know it, every hacker in the world is concentrating an attack on the affected server network, and easily has your numbers ;-) Now on the other hand since they didn't disclose the name, hackers are left to poke around hundreds of credit card processing company's networks hoping they have a match.
