    Security-focused IT Admin & Developer

    United States - Last active: 7 days ago - Tests: 1

    I worked as senior software developer for a high-tech security corporation for 2 years (and still do consulting with them) and have been a developer for 6 years. I was responsible for their security audits and testing of their SaaS apps. I developed many cryptography-focused applications and wrote dozens of integration projects for cryptographic hardware tokens. I'm familiar, and up to date, with modern hash schemes (ie. SHA2, MD5), symmetric/block algorithms (ie. AES), and asymmetric algorithms (ie. RSA) and best practices. I practice secure programming in all of my projects and always follow best practices to ensure the final result is of the highest quality. I'm well-versed in PHP, HTML5, CSS, JavaScript (including jQuery, Angular, and Node), Bootstrap, PhoneGap / Cordova, WordPress, and ASP.NET. I also run a security-focused blog (https://joscor.com) and provide security audits for large state agencies in the area.

    Information security expert

    United States - Last active: 2 days ago - 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
