#851 new Bug / Defect

Memory leakage

Reported by: laowei Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: Generic / unclassified Version: OpenVPN git master branch (Community Ed)
Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords:
Cc: plai


In init.c file, line 1577, if c->c1.tuntap is not NULL, the code doesn't free the memory. do_init_tun will alloc new memory for c->c1.tuntap.

    /* If we emulate persist-tun on android we still have to open a new tun and
     * then close the old */
    int oldtunfd = -1;
    if (c->c1.tuntap)
        oldtunfd = c->c1.tuntap->fd;

    /* initialize (but do not open) tun/tap object */

Cc: plai added

this is only relevant on TARGET_ANDROID, as for #ifndef TARGET_ANDROID, that whole branch is conditional on

    if (!c->c1.tuntap)

... so maybe just free()ing inside the #ifdef block above? @plai?

Yes. It is only relevant on TARGET_ANDROID.

I am just looking again on this since I am not sure if this was fixed or not.

I am not sure what would not be freed in that case. And the current code around oldtunfd is a different but I also see no memory leak there. Keep in mind that fd is just an int and need to special free() call to release the memory.

Sorry misread where the leak is going to happen. I am preparing a patch for this.
