comment If a cryptanalytic breakthrough is made, what process should be followed?
Depending on when you consider something a breakthrough I believe this happens much more often than one thinks. Consider the integer overflow on BitCoin: the idea behind the currency is decentralization through open source code of a certain peer to peer protocol. He found a flaw in its implementation. Instead of trying to contact a "certain" centralized person, he showed to everyone listening to the blockchain what the problem was and anyone with debugger skills could find the problem. Also consider that windows virus that closed the vulnerability it used.
