Rootshell Security’s CVSS Calculator is now one of the most popular Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) packages available to developers.

In less than 12 months, the free calculator has reached over 5,000 unique downloads to become the second most downloaded CVSS package.

The calculator is an open-source package that enables PHP developers to generate CVSS scores from vectors.

Security tools typically represent software vulnerabilities as vectors, instead of providing developers with a numerical score. Rootshell’s CVSS Calculator calculates the respective base, temporal, and environmental scores from a given vector, making it quick and easy to generate a numerical score.

The calculator was built by Rootshell’s development team. Liam Hackett, Head of Development, said: “We’re thrilled that our CVSS Calculator is making so many developers’ lives easier. We will ensure it continues to serve as an indispensable tool for developers in the industry.”
