Re: When?
I disagree... You find out about it and stop the attack and notify the public. A few days doesnt sound like much but I dont see a reason why they can't notify when they find out.

Re: When?
Another article out there says Target discovered this only on the 15th.  Considering that this would be a truly "oh shit" moment, the disclosure was timely.  There's no undue delay here.  The first concern for when something happens like this is shutting off and stopping the bleeding, to keep it from continuing.  So for a couple of days to go by is not a problem.

When?
 

I think one of the big questions here is when target found out about this. These breaches should be made public asap in my opinion. You can go back and find out about who is responsible after but letting your customers know asap is critical.
