Memory leak from evp_init under OpenSSL
Closed, ResolvedPublic


I noticed the following memory leaks from the tests:

==29732== 48 bytes in 1 blocks are definitely lost in loss record 2 of 2
==29732==    at 0x4C2EBAB: malloc (vg_replace_malloc.c:299)

There is evp_init, which allocates memory under OpenSSL (EVP_MD_CTX_new()), but there is no evp_free(), which should call the EVP_MD_CTX_free().
