Home » Vocabulary » Thing » Memory leak

A memory leak (or leakage, in this context) happens when a computer program manages memory allocations in an incorrect way. In object-oriented programming, a memory leak may occurs when an object cannot be accessed by the running code despite it’s stored in memory.
A memory leak can only be detected by a programmer with access to the program and it can be confused with a number of other problems.
