Bug Description

The libmagic1 package repots XLS files as application/CDFV2-unknown
This is a bug in the libmagic code and has been fixed in version 5.31 and up.

We have a file transfer app running on LTS 16.04 and it's constantly rejecting files of .xls

This bug was fixed upstream almost a year ago. It would be nice to see this addressed in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, which is still on libmagic1 version 5.25.
