Memory leak in check_sig_and_print
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Found using oss-fuzz

rc = do_check_sig (c, node, NULL, &is_expkey, &is_revkey, &pk);

allocates memory and stores it in pk

Then, in most cases, memory gets freed.
But in the last case before returning, it remains unfreed.

Patch would be like

diff --git a/g10/mainproc.c b/g10/mainproc.c
index 74c6e9ec3..6a0389de6 100644
--- a/g10/mainproc.c

+      free_public_key (pk);

   return rc;

Thanks again. Good catch.
In Japanese 39 sounds like "Thank You!", that's indeed appropriate to your report. :-)
