Expected return is probability multiplied by value.

What is the expected return from discovering a bug in a media library, browser, JavaScript engine, web framework or plug-in given that all are so numerous that neither of us can be bothered bogging ourselves down in listing them?

During its imperial phase, what was the expected return from discovering a bug in Adobe Flash, the single failure point propagated across so many platforms and browsers?
