About Me

Despite his nickname, SerHack is not an hacker.

SerHack (SeərHæck) is a security researcher, developer, and writer. He started his career with development of payment gateways for a popular cryptocurrency. Since then he has reported several bugs and security issues, many of them CVE. He is widely known for reporting the MEGA incident and conducts different malware analyses. Additionally, SerHack contributes to the Monero project – a cryptocurrency focused on privacy. In 2018 he wrote “Mastering Monero”, which is considered the best resource to learn to about the blockchain world and the Monero project.

His main research activity focuses on security information, cryptocurrencies and application of blockchain technology and its implications. He also gave an important contribution to the state of the art of sharing knowledge about information security and blockchain, publishing in December 2018, Mastering Monero that was deeply appreciated by many members of international community.

Despite his elusiveness, he has been featured on Bleepingcomputer, PCMag, IlManifesto and others blogs. Additionally, in 2017, he entered the Envato and BOSCH one walls of fame. The nickname “SerHack” derives from the first CTF (Capture The Flag) competition called “Seriously hack me”.

Actually he is studying Computer Science in a famous university of North Italy, but at the moment his position is still unknown. He believes in the principle of “sharing knowledge”, thus all of his major content is freely available on the Web. To share further his own knowledge, he created some cheatsheets and books.

Here is a list that sum up the services provided by SerHack.

Security Code Audit

A code audit identifies security issues in the design or implementation of your application. It is able to identify issues that are hard to identify during a penetration test and can be considered a special form of a full white-box penetration test.

Based on the complexity and project budget, I will be able to write a report that includes the details of the issues found in your project, including best practices and potential solutions to hand to your developer team. Project developed with C, C++, Python, Java, Go, Javascript can be checked. Remember: prevention is better than cure!

I want my code audited!

Technical Writing

Re-editing texts of a technical nature requires many resources and often the result is not satisfactory. If they are not written correctly, even the experts will find it difficult to read your text. I am therefore available for technical writing assignments of this kind.

With my experience as an author and as a technician, I would like to help you write documentation, articles, sections and much more that require extensive research. The service will be tailored to your budget and audience.

Let’s discuss how you wish to collaborate!
