    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

    Senior Developer, PM

    Russia - Tests: 5 - Portfolio: 2

    I have strong background in UNIX/Linux software development, Master's Degree in Computer Science. I worked on Enterprise high-load distributed hosting automation systems as a Team Leader (3.5 years in SWsoft, Inc., now called Parallels). For the last 6 years I'm running my own small software development business in Russia with primary focus on Python/Django apps. Not pure Web but often involving integration with hardware (Proximity Cards, Sensor Screens) or external systems like Payment Processing, SMS Gateways, GABRIEL (Airline Reservation System), etc. I can take an idea and turn it into a working business, through all the intermediate stages. Also I have experience of investing my own funds in my projects, so I feel the difference between "perfect code" in a month and "good enough" code that increases the revenue right now. Nevertheless, my code is very good: no copy-paste, always written with performance, flexibility and security in mind, etc. On oDesk I'm looking for (and actually find :) interesting projects with a sight on long-term fruitful cooperation. I'm also open to smaller activities (e.g., consulting) where my knowledge can be helpful.
