SFP Secondary Cluster: Failure to Release Resource
A category in the Common Weakness Enumeration published by The MITRE Corporation.
Categories in the Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE) group entries based on some common characteristic or attribute.
This category identifies Software Fault Patterns (SFPs) within the Failure to Release Resource cluster (SFP14).
The program does not release or incorrectly releases a resource before it is made available for re-use.
The software does not properly "clean up" and remove temporary or supporting resources after they have been used.
The software does not sufficiently track and release allocated memory after it has been used, which slowly consumes remaining memory.
CWE identifiers in this view are associated with clusters of Software Fault Patterns (SFPs).
