Summary

Several issues where found in 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.
