Brian was a pleasure to work with. Due to his concise, well explained report of a misconfiguration on my site, I was able to quickly patch the site, and rotate the exposed credentials.

Brian was prompt in responding to my requests for additional information, allowing me to determine the scope of the leaked information and who may have accessed it. He is definitely a top tier security researcher.

Thanks a ton!
