Bug Description

When unzipping Office XML Files e.g. XLSX there ist a subfolder [trash] containig a file called e.g. 0000.dat.

XLM Structure is describet here: http://www.ecma-international.org/news/TC45_current_work/Office%20Open%20XML%20Part%201%20-%20Fundamentals_final.docx

the 0000.dat file ist detected as a a ms-exe.

The problem ist in combination with amavisd-new on our mailservers that will block the xlsx as file classiefies the attachement as executable.

The only solution seemes to disable the use of file completely on our mailservers
