      Description

      Hashing data is security-sensitive. It has led in the past to the following vulnerabilities:

      Cryptographic hash functions are used to uniquely identify information without storing their original form. When not done properly, an attacker can steal the original information by guessing it (ex: with a rainbow table), or replace the original data with another one having the same hash.

      This rule raises an issue when MD5_CALCULATE_HASH_FOR_RAW or MD5_CALCULATE_HASH_FOR_CHAR functions are used.
