Missing Release of Memory after Effective Lifetime

CWE-401 - Missing release of memory after effective lifetime (memory leak)
'Missing release of memory after effective lifetime (memory leak)' is a weakness that occurs when software doesn't effectively release allocated memory after it is used. If not addressed, this enables attackers to launch denial of service attacks (by crashing or hanging the program) or take advantage of other unexpected behavior resulting from low memory conditions.
