泄漏 vs 走漏

1. 泄漏 can mean "to leak, to escape", and 走漏 doesn't have this meaning. E.g.
管道泄漏煤气了。 [phr] The pipe leaked gas.

2. When 走漏 and 泄漏 both mean "to disclose, to leak", they are mostly the same, except for 走漏 is habitually paired with "information", words such as 风声, 消息. It's worthwhile to point out that we rarely use 泄漏 with 风声, but 泄漏消息 is acceptable. 泄漏 can be followed a wider range of nouns than 走漏:
风声 fēng shēng [n] news, information .
E.g. 要是你走漏了风声,我饶不了你。 [phr] If you leak any information, I will punish you.
