In computer science (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_science), a memory leak is a type of resource leak (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Resource_leak) that occurs when a computer program (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_program) incorrectly manages memory allocations (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memory_allocation)[1] (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Memory_leak#cite_note-1) in such a way that memory which is no longer needed is not released.
