JHOVE2 hangs on EPUB/ZIP file

johankb avatarjohankb created an issue

When I try to scan attached EPUB file, JHOVE2 seems to get stuck in an infinite loop. I didn't encounter this problem with any other files (EPUB or otherwise), so there may be something funny going on with this specific file.

When I rename the file to a a .zip extension it opens normally in Windows Explorer (and its contents can be extracted).

    OK, so I accidentally uploaded the wrong (renamed) attachment first time around and then created a mess with the comments (I thought was editing my original post and then it turn out I had added a comment).

    Anyway, any of these files (which are all the same but with different extensions) should reproduce the problem.

Tip: Filter by directory path e.g. /media app.js to search for public/media/app.js.
Tip: Use camelCasing e.g. ProjME to search for
Tip: Filter by extension type e.g. /repo .js to search for all .js files in the /repo directory.
Tip: Separate your search with spaces e.g. /ssh pom.xml to search for src/ssh/pom.xml.
Tip: Use ↑ and ↓ arrow keys to navigate and return to view the file.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Ctrl+j (next) and Ctrl+k (previous) and view the file with Ctrl+o.
Tip: You can also navigate files with Alt+j (next) and Alt+k (previous) and view the file with Alt+o.
