Subject: yet another memleak in OCSP handling (patch included)
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 500b
Hi, I've found yet another memory leak in the OCSP handling code. Problem is, that find_issuer in sometimes returned an X509 object from the stack (not to be freed) but in some cases also an X509 object which had to be freed (as returned by X509_STORE_CTX_get1_issuer). In the last case a memory leak occured since the object was never freed. With the attached patch find_issuer will now always return an X509 object which need to be freed and this will be freed always after use. Regards, Steffen
