There should be a form on the website to contact them! Use that!

Hi all,

Lets say I found a vulnerability in some company's website ( e.g SQL
Injection ) and that vulnerability is crucial to the company. How do I
ethically report it to the Company and have credit for that.

Can I go and say "Hey! I found a vuln in your website with gives me
the password back for any user" Or doing this kinda stuff is not
ethical at all unless you make a SLA with the company before doing any
your own pentest.

Can somebody give me any pointer in this direction.
