    thanks
    Freelancer's Response
    Not sure why client had given me 3 stars. I had provided an estimate of 2hrs per server for VA and I had to do some extra manual assessing and had completed the tasks in 7 hours instead of 6 hours. I had provided 20page report per server as well.

    Client's requirement was not entirely on White Hat side. Wanted me to get him some files in a FTP location which he didn't have credentials or authorization. (Wanted me to hack that FTP server)
