After many months of searching, I recently came across an EC-council certified encryption specialist, advanced penetration testing and a computer hacking forensic investigator. very sound fellow I must say… If you require the services of a competent hacker you can reach out to him on +12536422665.

  2. Thank you for sharing this post to make us aware. It is a very important subject to discuss. Remotely accessible is the biggest technical issue and hackers take this advantage. But there should be at least a way to secure it more. Did you find out any way to solve the problem?
