1) Project Details: (be as specific as possible):
I've got a file of 444 lines of code including html (a lot of code replicatin in different switch($case) sections. I need it tested to make sure it is secure. I'm a good php coder in making things work, but need to make sure I'm not leaving any security holes as this code will be replicated much.

2) Payment Amount: $30

3) Payment method/ details (Paypal, check? Timeline?): Paypal

4) Additional Info (about project or potential bidders): If my price is too low and you have INCREDIBLE credentials to show me, please post a price. Otherwise, all responses should include credentials showing why you are good on the security side, not just the dancing side of php.

What kind of security do you wish to add to it?

I just want to make sure I didn't leave it vulnerable to attack. Not really adding to it, but possibly tweaking portions to ensure it is secure. Shouldn't take more than an hour for someone who knows what they are looking for.

I use SWITCH CASE functions all the time, I could probably help you

I think the OP is looking for someone who knows about how the code might be hacked, not necessarily just how to make sure the switch() is used right.

I would think that 444 lines of code would take more than an hour to go through. Are you sure you aren't expecting too much for too little here? I'm just trying to help you find someone with expertise, which I'm not that person in this case, but perhaps it requires more time and skill than you expect?

I could imagine if this person does find loopholes or issues, that it would greatly increase their time required to help suggest changes.

I agree. Most "entry level" coders are probably charging $20 - $40 / hr and are "entry level" for a reason. From what it sounds like, your looking for an intermediate to expert level coder. I would expect that level of expertise to cost anywhere from $50 - $150 hr. With a security expert towards the high end of that range.

444 lines of code (including HTML) is not so much as some people believe. However I do not recommend mixing HTML and PHP (spaghetti code), for easier maintenance and debugging. There are plenty of template engines to escape from this nightmare.

Payments vary in the different parts of the world.

These are very simple functions that I need checked. I assure you it wouldn't take longer than an hour. Simple $_POST, ob_get_contents, re sorting those contents, then writing them to file. Not too much. But all this useless jabbering in my post is going to get it less attention now... this wasn't a post to discuss whether I was asking to little, it was looking for paid help. I'm not paying based upon entry level, I'm paying based upon it being freelance

Yeah scripts usually have white space in them, so it could be checked in under an hour by someone who knows what they are doing. You can find people on here who will do it for pennies in their free time to just help you out, might take awhile it get it completed tho.

so is anyone here willing to help? if not, please delete your reply so it can look unresolved for more people to look at it.

I've PM'ed you but I'll also post here that I can probably do it for you, I'm pretty good at debugging others code.
