I can't promise you an update in the following days but maybe there will be one in the near future because I have to install Star Trek Online again to read out the current hashes.
How could anyone abuse the function? why not just launch an exe with the file name of "star trek online.exe" that way if the hash changes it wouldn't matter?
Why not, instead of a hash, just check the properties (same that you get when you Right Click, Properties on the EXE) for the Digital signature? it is signed: Cryptic Studios Inc.
