    Report it. You have found it before someone else, and there's an opportunity
    to fix it before lesser individuals exploit it for their own gain..

    What's not clear from your message is your affiliation with <some large
    company>, and how it is that you found the vulnerability. But that doesn't
    affect what The Right Thing To Do is, but if you weren't supposed to be
    testing it, then expect the obvious questions about why you were poking
    around.
