I'm not clear, how would an attacker exploit this? They'd need to
be able to specify the file that gets hashed, and the file would
have to be not present and would thus trigger the crash? Are
there any real world examples of an affected application? (web
based?)

My hunch is that this is just a bug, not a security issue.

I'll leave it for now, if anyone comes up with a security impact/etc.
let us know! (I bet this never happens, ah well =).

Thanks for your feedback on this.

Regards,
Salvatore
