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
We recommend that you upgrade your nsis packages.
