German Federal Parliament IT Abyss
Wednesday, 01 July 2015
In 2015 the German parliament gazed into its own IT abyss. However unknown even to its own employees, the actual disaster took place some time ago already. This article covers the events by temporal occurrence, along with our respective points of view on various matters, ranging from computer sciences to politics.

First covered by mass media in May 2015, a cyber attack on the German Federal Parliament (Bundestag) later appeared to be more devastating than previously thought. About a month after the first press releases, computer systems of the parliament were still infected with malicious software. Also the attackers ware able to harvest large amounts of data via these different types of malware, implanted into the computes used by two German political parties. During the same period of time a computer forensic analysis of one of the infected systems took place. Independently media coverage later indicated substantial hardware damage to computer systems. After weeks passed, we realized criticism regarding crisis management was expressed nationwide. According to further reports a total loss of the so called "Parlakom" network infrastructure, including computer hardware and software costing millions, was soon feared in the parliamentary sphere.

The NSA  QUANTUM  Pro-
ject (Part 1)
Friday, 01 May 2015
The QUANTUM project was one of the most top-secret ventures of the NSA. During the last months several news agencies re- ported on that specific technology.

As Bruce Schneier wrote in his book »Data and Goliath«, the clandestine QUANTUM project was meant to be kept as secret as possible. In the meantime though various reports indicated that this project was not the only one of its kind, but that the Chinese government is in possession of a very capable »Great Firewall of China«, for a longer period of time already. Quite often authors confused that one with the »Great Cannon of China« which is a different system indeed.

The  Heartbleed  Catastro-
phe Revised
Thursday, 15 May 2014
In early April 2014 two independent IT security specialists from Codenomicon and Google Security discovered a flaw that was introduced into OpenSSL in December 2011.

One common misinterpretation was that "Heartbleed", which is the way the flaw/bug was prematurely called, would only affect current versions of OpenSSL. However the truth is that older versions were affected as well – number 1.01 and 1.02 to be more precise. OpenSSL is a piece of software to encrypt traffic of connections on transport layer, which mostly affects TCP connections. The TCP/IP-stack is the dominant protocol-stack on the internet.
