Missing Release of Memory after Effective Lifetime
ffjpeg commit caade60a69633d74100bd3c2528bddee0b6a1291 was discovered to contain a memory leak via /src/jfif.c.
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.
