Lewis found a XSS vulnerability on our site that we had missed. We got in touch with him to find out more details and he was extremely helpful and professional in his response. He got back to us very quickly and gave a clear and thorough description of the issue he had found and also provided links to resources to help fix it. I'd happily recommend him.
