Problem summary

  • PROBLEM DESCRIPTION:
    A memory leak in the demangler interface may occur with certain
    input strings.  This is caused by heap allocations of one byte;
    which, in certain cases, are not reclaimed.
    
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users of the demangler library in the C++ runtime or
    libdemangle.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Did not use heap allocation for the case where the memory would
    not be explicitly freed.
    

Temporary fix
