Hello OpenSSL Team,

During memory leak hunting on iOS platform I noticed, that function X509_REQ_to_X509 generates memory. Bellow you can found code snapshot.

As well I would like to know do you plan to fix this memory leak? If yes, then when?

Best regards,

X509_REQ *req = NULL;

EVP_PKEY *key = EVP_PKEY_new();
// Setup key ...

X509 *cert = X509_REQ_to_X509(req, 365, key); // Memory leak here!!!

// Free the memory.
