This is a fairly trivial item, but I haven’t posted in a good long while so I thought I’d drop off 5 lines of JS and pretend it’s something.
Many of you have by now made use of Greasemonkey to add functionality or alter webpages on-the-fly. Since it’s release in 2005 Greasemonkey has been a friend to anyone wanting to control the way their user experience works.

So, nist.gov provides a handy CVSSv2 calculator available @ http://nvd.nist.gov/cvss.cfm?calculator&adv&version=2. The calculator works fine (or at least as well as the scoring system and provides the user with a shortened form of the values used to calculate the score. A not so obvious fact is that it is possible to pass this shortened form to the calculator using the vector= parameter to dynamically load the values.
