a bug in this class "" line 246:
> Type:  Improper Resource Shutdown or Release
> Description:
> The application fails to release (or incorrectly releases) a system resource before it
is made available for re-use. This
> condition often occurs with resources such as database connections or file handles. Most
unreleased resource issues
> result in general software reliability problems, but if an attacker can intentionally
trigger a resource leak, it may be
> possible to launch a denial of service attack by depleting the resource pool.
> Recommendations:
> When a resource is created or allocated, the developer is responsible for properly releasing
the resource as well as
> accounting for all potential paths of expiration or invalidation. Ensure that all code
paths properly release resources
