Auch wenn letztens starke Töne angeschlagen wurden, scheint sich das ganze doch entgegen dem Willen unserer FPÖ weiterzuentwickeln. Mal sehen, was die Justiz dazu sagt.

Susanne Winter schlägt wieder zu. Als Umweltsprecherin ist so eine Ansage ja doppelt peinlich. Andererseits hat da niemand etwas anderes erwartet, oder?

Laut Susanne Winter ist die „angebliche Klima-Problematik ein einziges mediales Lügengebäude, das zum Einsturz gebracht werden muss."

"XML is like violence — if it doesn’t solve your problems, you are not using enough of it"  (http://nokogiri.org/)


Finding inconsistencies in documentation is one thing. Finding four versions of XML abuse in the beginning of a document is quite another. Having none of the referred DTD online is apparently well-established practice.

I weep for you, fellow programmers.

XML is crap. Really. There are no excuses. XML is nasty to parse for humans, and it's a disaster to parse even for computers. There's just no reason for that horrible crap to exist. --Linus Torvalds

Also, es mag sein, daß ein gezielter Hackerterrorcybercyber im Bundestag stattgefunden hat oder stattfindet oder es mag sein, daß da nur ein Haufen Spammertrojaner ein wenig Amok laufen.

Wenn man den von außen sichtbaren Teil des Netzes und seinen Zustand als Maßstab für das innere Netz nimmt (und es gibt eigentlich keinen Grund das nicht zu tun), dann läuft da vermutlich ein über zehn Jahre alter, mit Draht, Spucke und Microsoft zusammengeklebter Haufen Systeme am diesseitigen und jenseitigen Rande des Supportzeitraums, der jede Form von Zugriff, autorisiert oder nicht, mehr oder weniger willkommen heißt.

Jedenfalls braucht es für eine Kompromittierung der nach außem im Internet sichtbaren Systeme nicht wirklich einen Nation State Actor, sondern die gestern aufgelisteten Dinge sind alle auf dem Seltenheits- und Schwierigkeitsgrad 'fortgeschrittenes Script-Kiddie'.  Mit ein wenig Zeit und krimineller Energie würden sie sich nicht nur verifizieren, sondern zu echten Zugangstoren aufweiten lassen. Da jetzt "Die Russen waren es!" zu schreien wäre sogar dann kontraproduktiv, wenn sie es gewesen wären, weil in dem Zustand, in dem sich die sichtbaren Systeme befinden, hätte es ohne größeren Aufwand jeder sein können und die Systeme so herrichten, daß jeder beliebige andere in Verdacht gerät: Die Kisten zählen in einem ernsthaften Hackerterrorcybercyber als wehrlos, unbewaffnet und veraltet.

Andere Fakten legen nahe, daß es Sprungmöglichkeiten gibt, mit denen man von diesen Systemen in innere Parlaments- und Fraktionsnetze vordringen kann, oder Daten kompromittieren kann, die von Systemen weiter 'drinnen' konsumiert werden und mit denen man diese Systeme kartieren und einnehmen kann. Das heißt, daß die Gesamthärte des Ziels 'Netz des deutschen Parlaments' mehr so einige Größenordnungen unterhalb von Milspec auf dem Level 'engagierter Hobbyist' einzustufen ist.

Dazu kommt jedenfalls, daß der Zustand und die Struktur der im Internet sichtbaren Systeme nahe legen, daß es nicht weiter verwunderlich ist, wenn ein "Angriff" auf den Bundestag (so er denn existiert) nicht in den Griff zu bekommen ist, bzw. daß es vermutlich schon schwierig sein wird, einen solchen Angriff denn zu diagnostizieren.

Denn dazu müßte man ja einen definierten Soll-Zustand haben, gegen den man die Installationen vergleichen könnte, und den müßte für die existierenden Systeme jemand durchgesehen, abgenommen und eine Risikoübernahme dafür abgezeichnet haben. Und ich kann nicht glauben, daß irgendjemand für die im Internet sichtbaren Systeme so etwas sehenden Auges tun würde.

Mehr Geld, und insbesondere mehr Personal mit entsprechender Ausbildung und Motivation, würden wahrscheinlich tatsächlich helfen. Aber man würde da nicht von einem Wiederaufbau reden, sondern von einer Neukonzeption, und hoffentlich mit Komponenten, die nicht pre-pwned kommen.

Zentral wäre dabei eine Struktur hinten dran, die nicht von 'aufstellen und stehen lassen' ausgeht, sondern die Betrieb und kontinuierliche Weiterentwicklung und Aktualisierung der Systeme mit einplant. Sonst sind wir in einigen Jahren wieder genau da wo wir jetzt sind.

IT gammelt halt weg, und ob man das jetzt 'technical debt', 'bitrot' oder sonstwie nennt ist nicht so wichtig. Der Effekt ist jedenfalls real, und Aktualisierungen der Systeme und Weiterführung des Konzepts sind Kosten und Prozesse, die man gleich mit einplanen muß.

EDIT: Weil ich eben einen längeren Chat zu dem Thema hatte, hier noch ein Hinweis auf https://plus.google.com/+KristianK%C3%B6hntopp/posts/bzBKd8hqQx3 "Die Sicherheit von Parlamentsnetzwerken" Was wir hier an den im Internet sichtbaren Servern des Parlaments sehen können, ist vermutlich nur ein Spiegelbild dessen, was drinnen auch gilt. Und das ist halt nicht unerwartet:

»organizations which design systems ... are constrained to produce designs which are copies of the communication structures of these organizations«
  -- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Conway's_law

Das gilt auch hier. Wir haben es mit einem Netz zu tun, in dem sich ein Haufen Gruppen mit unterschiedlichen, zum Teil einander zuwiderlaufenden Interessen arrangieren müssen. Das Netz und die Prozeß- und Organisationsstruktur können also nicht aus einem Guß sein, und auch nicht wirklich zentral kontrolliert werden. Mit den Erwartungen, Ansätzen und Strukturen aus einem Corporate Intranet kommt man da nicht sehr weit. Das gilt, je nach Zersplitterungsgrad der Gruppe, auch für die jeweiligen Intranetze der Gruppen.

Bei der Späh-Attacke auf das deutsche Parlament entwendeten die Täter offenbar große Mengen vertraulicher E-Mails. Der Bundestag will jetzt damit beginnen, sein internes Datennetz "Parlakom" teilweise neu aufzubauen.

Ein Mitarbeiter des auf Computer-Sicherheit spezialisierten Unternehmens Kaspersky hat nicht aufgepasst und den Anhang einer gefälschten E-Mail geöffnet. Anschließend hat ein Schädling monatelang vertrauliche Informationen abgezogen.

Watch the speech.

Ignore the comments (it is a pity that I almost didn't write this advice, because it has become habitual to ignore all comments on similar topics).

The message is strong, even more so that it touches topics bordering perceived 'feminism' as so many (mis-)understand it.

I myself hope every day that I am part of the inadvertent feminists that try to be part of the solution, of the future.
 
Absolutely wonderful speech, and I agree wholeheartedly. Let's all band together for Gender Equality!

Been there with our brunch crowd, and we are all of the same opinion: best brunch place in Vienna. Only one small handicap ahead: tables in the non-smoker area are for maximum six people, so if you have a bigger crowd, it might put a slight crimp into the Saturday morning fun. Else: really, really great buffet, huge selection and for that dead cheap. As someone else said, the service could be slightly better, sometimes orders get lost, but all in all we were treated very well. I have to mention the buffet again: entries/breakfast items sit next to soups and full blown meat and vegetarian dishes, and just around there corner there's the sweet stuff. And everything is of best quality. I'd have a hard time recommending it for other times, because I have rarely been there - it's not my type of restaurant -, but for brunch it's the best around for me.

Oh my. This is my favourite Tex-Mex place, hands down. The food is just great. Pickings are there for omnivores, vegetarians, even vegans. And they are far from slim. The food is really tasty - just remember, when it says 'hot' on the cover, they mean it (especially for the average Austrian). There's not a lot of space to sit, but for take away it is one of the best places in Vienna, hands down. So, if you ask me if I would recommend that place: every single time. For every single evening in the week. I just love it.

Again, hungry on a Sunday afternoon, walking around the 6th district - and in the end we went to a place I have been a few times and never ceased to amaze me. According to widely-travelled friends this is one of the few genuine Shanghai restaurants they know outside of Shanghai, and it has a lot of things to offer. Not the least being a very friendly and helpful staff, and the Special Menu offer is amazing. Two entries and a main dish for as little as € 11.90? And the selection satisfies Omnivores, Vegetarians and Vegans alike. I really like to come here and taste different combinations - all time favourites being the Calamari (hot!) and the Cucumber-Garlic salad (greatest ever!). Another huge advantage are the lazy-sunday-afternoon-friendly opening hours. And even at the oddest hours, the staff is friendly and fast, the food gets served fresh and quickly. I love the place, it's definitely a must-go whenever you crave the genuine Shanghai kitchen experience.

I ordered for delivery here before, and wanted to take a closer look. Pity that it's a bit hidden, because there were fewer people than this diner deserves. And for it being a diner: don't think standard American Diner, it's much more classy. The waiters are nice, if a bit quiet, and not as close to being obnoxious as in other American style restaurants. The burgers are great, fresh and made to order, rarely had better. The interior is a bit dark, more lighting wouldn't hurt. But having Ben and Jerries more than made up for it. I'll be back, testing the sandwiches, and maybe even the pan pizza (which I usually don't have, but it too looked great!).

Well, there's one word for the oldest brunch location in Vienna: Dreadful. Not only "losing" the reservation (as in taking one while being overbooked already, and then knowing nothing about it), but the seating option was in the middle of the aisle, just next to the entrance. In winter, they sport those heavy felt curtains - which are too long and won't swing closed by themselves. Too bad for anyone being placed at the worst table they could come up with. Granted, the girl serving in this room was really trying, but was also vapid and forgot orders over and again. Being nice is good, being competent would have been better. Also, promising Prosecco as consolation and repair was a nice idea - actually bringing it without us having to ask five times for it would have been going a long way to making up for all the mistakes. Which goes a lot more about the rest of the personnel. They were unfriendly and overlooked such "details" as having empty serving plates on the buffet for more than 20 minutes three hours before the brunch buffet would be closed. Asked why, one waitress answered "I can't see them from back here" - she was standing behind the buffet counter. Adding insult to injury was that the food can only be called mediocre with a lot of goodwill. The selection was poor, the waffles cold and tough, the plates mostly empty (see above), and you still had to pay fourteen something euros - most drinks excluded. And the self service fountain suffered a similar problem as the serving plates did. This place should be one of the best places in Vienna for a brunch. I would never recommend it. Overfull, overpriced, and not living up to the promise - seems someone is trying to ride on past glory. But that ride might be a short one. Maybe read some of my other reviews and learn from places that got it down pat, and I might consider visiting again. Then again, maybe not.

One product: Dry Aged Beef. Well, they have more than that one product, but that's a new one I really loved. To be honest: I wasn't there my first time yesterday, but I have been dining there on and off for years. What is really fascinating is that the overall quality never failed to amaze me. I mean, steak places have one big problem: if they are hosting huge tables (Rocky Docky's does) with people who have to have some extras (we do) and people who are pretty picky about how they want their steak to be done (from very rare to medium), it is a challenge to put everything including side dishes on such a table at the same time. But Rocky Docky's crew manages just that. The steaks were perfectly cooked, we were perfectly happy. From all the side dishes I tried, I love the French Beans and the Chili Roast Potatoes most, but it's always hard to decide - and I have been known to take something else, like the baked beans or the corn ... The interior is nice, the western style just brought over the top enough to not being genuine, but not yet cheesy. And for people who think that the price is a bit high: Nah, y'all get yer bang for yar buck, y'hear me?
