When analysing a specific valid .doc file Siegfried is exiting in panic

panic: runtime error: index out of range

goroutine 19 [running]:*ContainerMatcher).processHits(0xc000392850, 0xc000569320, 0x1, 0x1, 0xc00055f6e0, 0xc0000427e0, 0xc00060c780, 0x13, 0xc00004a4e0, 0x1)
        c:/gopath/src/ +0x748*ContainerMatcher).identify(0xc000392850, 0xc0000180c0, 0xe, 0x862fe0, 0xc0005692f0, 0xc00004a4e0, 0xc00058c960, 0x1, 0x1)

I tried a correction in internal/containermatch/identify.go/ProcessHits removing indexes out of range range, and it works well.
But as I don't know side effects, and I think thatif a value out of index range is returned there's a problem before, I would be really gratefull if you look at this problem.

One more information the file is truly a docx, even if its extension is .doc, and if I put a name with docx, Siegfried is not in panic...

As the file is a real archive, even if it's not sensible, I would prefer to send it to you by email.

Hi Jean-Séverin - this is fixed now on the develop branch. I've a few more tests to run and hope to release to production by the end of this week. Sorry for the delay on fixing this

The bug is fixed and the new version is now used in our archiving system.
Thanx a lot!
