Missing Release of Resource after Effective Lifetime
Memory leak in the hwsim_new_radio_nl function in drivers/net/wireless/mac80211_hwsim.c in the Linux kernel through 4.15.9 allows local users to cause a denial of service (memory consumption) by triggering an out-of-array error case.
CWE-772 - Missing Release Of Resource After Effective Lifetime
'Missing release of resource after effective lifetime' is a weakness that occurs when software doesn't sufficiently release a resource (e.g. memory, CPU, disk space, etc.) after it is used. If not addressed, attackers can launch a denial of service attack (by allocating a resource and not releasing it).
