Post "freeing unallocated memory" error in secaudit on Windows
This may be in the wrong forum, but I could not find a fitting one.

When running
Code:
secaudit.exe -b c: > secaudit.out
, I get the output
Code:
** freeing unallocated memory in acls.c line 4325
** 44 warnings were signalled
** 169 errors were found
.

This is with the version from ntfsprogs-windows-64-2014.2.15AR.3. The current version from the tools.zip produces a similar output:
Code:
** freeing unallocated memory in acls.c line 4198
** 44 warnings were signalled
** 169 errors were found


I presume that freeing unallocated memory is a bug. If I can help by supplying more information I'm happy to do so.

There is probably no better forum for this report...

This is a harmless bug, just ignore it.

Secaudit has an inbuilt memory allocation checker which has been useful in the debugging stages. Unfortunately, it does not properly account for allocations which are done in a library, because these allocations depend on the OS being used. The Windows implementation does not use any DLL, still the Linux logic for not accounting for a few kinds of allocations (done by a shared object) may be improperly applied. These wrong accounts could be related to errors or warnings which were reported.

Regards
