Debian DLA-1602-1 : nsis security update
High Nessus Plugin ID 119312
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionAmong others, Andre Heinicke from gpg4win.org found several issues of nsis, a tool for creating quick and user friendly installers for
Microsoft Windows operating systems.
The issues are fixed by ... ... using SetDefaultDllDirectories() to restrict implicitly loaded and dynamically loaded modules to trusted directories ... creating temporary directories in a way that only elevated users can write into it ... not implicitly linking against Version.dll but using wrapper functions
For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 2.46-10+deb8u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your nsis packages.
