Bug Description

Binary package hint: file

Ubuntu 10.10, i386

$ file -v
magic file from /etc/magic:/usr/share/misc/magic

I found that EPUB file was identified by file utility as 'data'. On the other side, I see that other EPUB files are identified correctly.

Correct result:
$ file "Miroslav Zamboch - Navsteva u psychiatra.epub"
Miroslav Zamboch - Navsteva u psychiatra.epub: Zip archive data, at least v1.0 to extract

Failed result:
$ file VTM.cz_2011_01.epub
VTM.cz_2011_01.epub: data

Example of EPUB file that is identified as 'data' can be get from this page:
