Description:
------------
There are some jpegs that are detected as Linux/i386 core file. This is only fixed in libmagic 5.18, currently php uses 5.17. See https://github.com/file/file/commit/7e21b5477712cedf70403624d705c6cd7656a780for the change in libmagic. 

There is currently no way to work around this as the magic file is compiled into php

libmagic is compiled into PHP, but not the magic file.

> This is only fixed in libmagic 5.18, […]

So this should be fixed for any of the actively supported PHP
versions[1].

this is not true at all!

with some luck (systems magic and the bundeled compatible) you can even re-generate the responsible file with "php -d 'display_errors=0' ext/fileinfo/create_data_file.php /usr/share/misc/magic.mgc > ext/fileinfo/data_file.c" at build time
