"If the vendor refuses to act upon the news of the vulnerability, then 
Full Disclosure is in order."  (don't release the numbers of course 
but release a generic statement that "this" universtity is not secure.

Is this a joke? Absolutely do *not* implement full disclosure. Doing
so will cause unnecessary and probable exposure of private

First, contact the university's IT department. If that doesn't work,
contact a regent of the university. They will put you in touch
with an individual that can fix the problem. There is no reason
to reveal the university to parties that have no business with
said information. Public forums only disclose information to
people that have no right to that information. You can not
control the actions individuals in the public have.

Risking the privacy of innocent students and faculty is not
the proper means to solve a problem.

Do you want X number of script kids pounding a university
causing them more problems?

Send a copy of the email to the University.  Might want to include 
their local TV news as well.  You'd be surprised how the alumni will 
react to get that fixed.

What are you, a media whore?

In order to give them one more shot you may wish to tell them on which 
date it will be publically released.
