 for file descriptor leak
From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  file descriptor leak
  fd leak
  
      (Or "fd leak" /F D leek/) A kind of programming
     bug analogous to a core leak, in which a program fails to
     close file descriptors ("fd"s) after file operations are
     completed, and thus eventually runs out of them.
  
     See leak.
