It's trivial, but base32_decode mallocates a "tmp" variable which is not freed in the "illegal character in base32 encoded string" case.


/* Convert base32 encoded chars to the 5-bit values that they represent. */
tmp = tor_malloc_zero(srclen);
for (j = 0; j < srclen; ++j) {

if (src[j] > 0x60 && src[j] < 0x7B) tmp[j] = src[j] - 0x61;
else if (src[j] > 0x31 && src[j] < 0x38) tmp[j] = src[j] - 0x18;
else {

log_warn(LD_BUG, "illegal character in base32 encoded string");
return -1;
