First of all, no "inform the Prince" option?

Honestly, it would have to do with how I feel about the organization and my circumstances. If I was truly a pauper and I was struggling to feed my family, I may try to figure out a way to exploit the situation.

Isn't there an established way to proceed that ethical security researchers have developed? Privately contact the organization responsible for the security flaw and if they don't fix it in X number of days, go public with it?

    Hmmm... Address it in X days or pay me $1x10^n to not go public with it.
