Description

I'd like to open a discussion about adding .epub, .mobi and other ebook file formats to our accepted file list.

Following an internal discussion, I understand that on a technical level, it is trivial to add them to the accepted list (great!) However, I'd like to know what work needs to be done in advance to assess potential security risks?

Is there any context behind the exclusion of these formats in the past that still applies today?
