Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG) 2010 may leak some memory when you access a site that is listed in the HTTPS Inspection exception list. After a while, these leaks may cause performance issues for the Forefront TMG firewall service.


This issue occurs because Forefront TMG 2010 does not correctly free a certificate context.


Update information

To resolve this issue, install the software update that is described in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base (KB) article:

2433623 Software Update 2 for Microsoft Forefront Threat Management Gateway (TMG) 2010 Service Pack 1


To work around this issue, remove the sites from the HTTPS Inspection exception list. Or, schedule regular restarts of the Forefront TMG firewall service when the used memory increases to a high proportion of the physical memory.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
