Researcher reputation:  40

Real name:
Kong Wen Bin

About me:
Hello there! I am a security researcher from Singapore. I hunt for bugs during my own free time to learn and become better in my skills and expertise towards web security.

I report any identified bugs to organisations around the world, free of charge! It is my way of contributing towards a safer internet. :)

NOTE #1: I DO NOT USE ANY INTRUSIVE TOOLS. Only Firefox web browser and my brain.

NOTE #2: All of my reports have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with my employer in any possible ways.

How to contact me:
If I reported a bug on your website, please reach out to me via Twitter (Direct Message is Open to all) so that we can fix it together to protect your users.

Alternative Contacts:
Once again, please contact me directly to fix the bugs.

Experience in Application Security
1-3 years

To reward me for my effort (optional):

- Write a Recommendation on my profile (it's free!)
- Hall of Fame
- Acknowledgement Letter

Halls of Fame:
Over 50 organisations have already officially acknowledged my effort in one of the ways mentioned above and I appreciate it! It was an honor working with them!
