Subject [jira] Commented: (COMPRESS-73) ZipArchiveInputStream cannot handle some valid files
Date Fri, 12 Feb 2010 11:40:27 GMT


Stefan Bodewig commented on COMPRESS-73:

The specific zip file named attached to COMPRESS-62 contains entries with
extra data that doesn't conform to the recommendations for extra fields from the "standard".

This is what InfoZIP's zip invoked with -Tv says (several similar messages):

    testing: D_/Installers/installer 2005.1 rc1/icon-32x32.gif  bad extra-field entry:
      EF block length (12595 bytes) exceeds remaining EF data (6 bytes)

and with svn revision 909366 you'll see a very similar exception message.

In order to fix this issue, we'd have to change the behavior from "fail for 'broken' extra
fields" to "ignore 'broken' extra fields".  I'll start a discussion on the dev list.
