Description Victor Pereira 2015-01-19 10:13:24 UTC
rh#1180642

It was reported that file versions prior to 5.22 did not limit the number of strings printed, which could lead to a local resource exhaustion and denial of service.

Upstream fix:
https://github.com/file/file/commit/65437cee25199dbd385fb35901bc0011e164276c

This issue seems to be introduced here:
https://github.com/file/file/commit/c8451af8ab0c2e2a93ce93b9c68257d31576cc85
which ended up in 5.16 release.
