    Information security expert

    United States - Tests: 2

    The most trusted security analyst on Elance! I offer world-class incident response, malware cleanup, and other assistance related to hacking / malware attacks. --- My expertise lies mainly in incident response and in reverse engineering / malware analysis. This means I can go in nearly blind and still quickly determine the source of an intrusion and how to fix the vulnerability. I can analyze a malicious artifact to determine its purpose. I can also apply my strategic experience to assess future threats. This is my normal work cycle for incident response clients: - get access information and begin investigating the server - perform triage / rapid removal of malicious and compromised files - keep track of all actions performed, and conduct live chat to inform clients of my progress (timezone permitting) - work with clients to keep monitoring for future hack attempts for the coming weeks and if possible, find/patch the vulnerability that allows the hack I will not accept payment if I can't finish a job to a client's satisfaction. My passion is for fighting malware and cyber criminals, not for taking money for quick and temporary solutions to a problem. I have successfully eradicated malware and secured the following platforms: - OsCommerce - Cre Loaded - CS-Cart - PrestaShop - Magento - Wordpress - Joomla - custom content management systems - PHPBB - vBulletin
