Áustria: pesquisas compradas para o chanceler Kurz (ÖVP)

Pesquisas pagas, que mostram bons valores para Kurz, foram processadas como faturas falsas por meio do Ministério das Finanças. Isso leva à acusação de infidelidade. Além disso, entre meados de 2016 e o primeiro trimestre de 2018, um total de 1,3 milhões de euros foi pago aos meios de comunicação por meio de anúncios para reportagens obedientes (veja a edição de assinatura eletrônica do SN de 2021-10-07). A alegação de suborno e corrupção deriva disso. O chanceler federal Kurz passou de ministro das relações exteriores a chanceler apenas com base em pesquisas ruins? As alegações pesam muito: são determinadas contra o chanceler, sua equipe, dois fabricantes de mídia e duos investigadores de pesquisas. Um detalhe interessante é que o juiz que, a pedido do ÖVP, questionou Kurz em vez do promotor de corrupção e economia sobre a alegação de falso testemunho perante o comitê de investigação de Ibiza, aprovou as buscas domiciliares na sede do ÖVP e em os confidentes de Kurz. Além disso, a ORF já emitiu mensagens de chat inconfundíveis sobre a causa nas principais notícias.

Seria desejável para o ÖVP como um partido reconhecer a responsabilidade e tirar conclusões e propor um candidato sucessor para Chanceler Kurz. Devido às graves alegações e à sua clareza, isso também seria do interesse dos eleitores do ÖVP. Os verdes, que se levantaram como o partido pelo meio ambiente e pela política limpa, não podem continuar assim. Sem o ÖVP haverá novas eleições mais cedo ou mais tarde, porque uma maioria no parlamento não é possível sem o FPÖ. Com um grupo de negadores de corona que protestam contra a vacinação (supostamente com o apoio da ServusTV), uma política responsável provavelmente não é viável a longo prazo. Mas qual seria o resultado de novas eleições? Um FPÖ fortalecido, o que torna ainda mais difícil encontrar uma maioria. Só podemos desejar que a coalizão entre o ÖVP e os Verdes possa continuar. Que ambas as partes podem trabalhar juntas, de forma construtiva e frutífera, só foi demonstrado pela reforma tributária ecossocial há poucos dias (embora alguns pés de cavalo ambientalmente-políticos ainda permaneçem). O ÖVP deve admitir a responsabilidade e não pode confiar na chantagem dos Verdes ou em um acobertamento pela mídia. É bem possível que muitos meios de comunicação fervam agora as acusações contra Kurz por meses, sem nunca citá-las; no entanto, confiar apenas em relatórios obedientes não me parece conveniente ao longo prazo.




Austria: bought surveys for Chancellor Kurz (ÖVP)

Paid surveys, which show good values for Kurz, have been processed as bogus invoices via the Ministry of Finance. This leads to the charge of infidelity. In addition, between mid-2016 and the first quarter of 2018, a total of 1.3 million euros was paid to the media through advertisements for compliant reporting (see the electronic subscription edition of the SN from 2021-10-07). The allegation of bribery and corruption is derived from this. Did Federal Chancellor Kurz rise from Foreign Minister to Chancellor only on the basis of bad polls? The allegations weigh heavily: They are determined against the Chancellor, his team, two media makers and two pollsters. A piquant detail on the side is that the judge who, at the urging of the ÖVP, questioned Kurz instead of the economic and corruption prosecutor on the allegation of false testimony before the Ibiza investigative committee, approved the house searches at the ÖVP headquarters and at Kurz's confidants. In addition, the ORF (Austrian state television) has now sent out unmistakable chat messages about the cause in the main news.

It would be desirable for the ÖVP as a party to acknowledge responsibility and draw conclusions and propose a successor candidate for Chancellor Kurz. Because of the serious allegations and their clarity, that would also be in the interests of the ÖVP voters. The Greens, who stood up as the party for clean environment and clean politics, cannot go on like this. Without the ÖVP there will be new elections sooner or later, because a majority in parliament is not possible without the FPÖ. With a party of corona deniers who rail against the vaccination (allegedly with the support of ServusTV), a responsible policy is probably not feasible in the long term. But what would the result of new elections be? A strengthened FPÖ, which then makes finding a majority even more difficult. One can only wish that the coalition between the ÖVP and the Greens can continue. That both parties can work together well, constructively and fruitfully, was just lately shown by the eco-social tax reform a few days ago (although a few environmentally-political horsefeet remain). The ÖVP must confess its responsibility and cannot rely on blackmailing the Greens or a cover-up by the media. It is quite possible that many media will boil up the allegations against Kurz for months without ever specifying what he is accused of; however, relying on souped-up reporting alone does not seem to be expedient in the long term to me.




Österreich: gekaufte Umfragen für Kanzler Kurz (ÖVP)

Bezahlte Umfragen, die gute Werte für Kurz darstellen, sind als Scheinrechnungen über das Finanzministerium abgewickelt worden. Daraus ergibt sich der Vorwurf der Untreue. Zudem sind zwischen mitte 2016 und dem 1.Quartal 2018 insgesamt 1,3 Millionen Euro über Inserate für willfährige Berichterstattung an Medien gezahlt worden (siehe elektronische Abonnementausgabe der SN vom 07.10.2021). Daraus leitet sich der Vorwurf der Bestechung und Bestechlichkeit ab. Ist Bundeskanzler Kurz damals nur aufgrund gezinkter Umfragen vom Außenminister zum Kanzler aufgestiegen? Die Vorwürfe wiegen schwer: Es wird gegen den Kanzler, sein Team, zwei Medienmacher und zwei Meinungsforscherinnen ermittelt. Pikantes Detail am Rande ist, daß gerade jener Richter, der Kurz auf Drängen der ÖVP statt der Wirtschafts- und Korruptionsstaatsanwalt bezüglich des Vorwurfes einer falschen Zeugenaussage vor dem Ibiza Untersuchungsausschuß befragt hatte, die Hausdurchsuchungen in der ÖVP Zentrale und bei Vertrauten von Kurz genehmigt hat. Zudem hat der ORF jetzt auch unmißverständliche Chatnachrichten zu der Causa in den Hauptnachrichten ausgesendet.

Es wäre wünschenswert, daß die ÖVP als Partei Verantwortung bekennt und Konsequenzen zieht und einen Nachfolgekandidaten für Bundeskanzler Kurz vorschlägt. Das wäre aufgrund der gravierenden Vorwürfe und deren Klarheit auch im Interesse der ÖVP Wähler. Die Grünen, die als Partei für saubere Umwelt und saubere Politik angetreten sind, können so nicht weitermachen. Ohne die ÖVP wird es aber auf kurz oder lang zu Neuwahlen kommen, denn im Parlament ist eine Mehrheit ohne die FPÖ nicht möglich. Mit einer Partei der Coronaleugner, die gegen die Impfung wettert (angeblich mit Unterstützung von ServusTV) ist eine verantwortungsvolle Politik wohl auf Dauer nicht machbar. Was aber wäre das Ergebnis von Neuwahlen? Eine gestärkte FPÖ, die die Mehrheitsfindung dann noch schwieriger macht. Man kann sich so nur wünschen, daß die Koalition zwischen ÖVP und Grünen fortgesetzt werden kann. Daß beide Parteien gut, konstruktiv und fruchtvoll zusammenarbeiten können, hat denn erst die ökosoziale Steuerreform vor wenigen Tagen bewiesen (wenngleich ein paar umweltpolitische Pferdefüße bleiben). Die ÖVP muß Verantwortung bekennen und kann nicht auf eine Erpressung der Grünen oder eine Vertuschung durch die Medien bauen. Es ist zwar gut möglich, daß viele Medien die Vorwürfe gegen Kurz jetzt monatelang hochkochen werden ohne diese je zu benennen; auf frisierte Berichterstattung alleine zu setzen scheint mir aber dennoch längerfristig nicht zielführend zu sein.




a̅tea v0.8.4: important security fix

In v0.8 we fixed an error that arose when the key obtained via X509_get_X509_PUBKEY was freed independently of the X509 certificate though it in deed is part of the cert. The error was found in networking.c. At the same time the author grepped for other usages of the X509_get_X509_PUBKEY function in all other files. It is a miracle why grep did not return any result at that time. Consequently the same error remained unfixed in dane-unbound.c and dane-direct.c. I had been a bit in wonder that this was the only point where the function was used but I did trust in the result of grep. For now I had discovered the error simply by reading the sources. Make sure you do not use any version before 0.8.4 without manually adding this fix because it is a severe security issue. It may crash a̅tea when a TLSA record contains a full cert or pubkey rather than a hash of it (which will be hardly used in practice though the TLSA response could be spoofed to pretend this)!



a̅tea v0.8.3 / micro fix for --no-check-cert

--no-check-cert now again works without having to state --no-check-time. Before it triggered a null dereferencing if --no-check-time was not given.
