Allegedly astroturfed Americans speak out over net neutrality filings

Those of you with long memories might remember one of the more amusing (or perhaps annoying) bugs of the Windows 95 and 98 era: certain specially crafted filenames could make the operating system crash. Malicious users could use this to attack other people's machines by using one of the special filenames as an image source; the browser would try to access the bad file, and Windows would promptly fall over.
It turns out that Windows 7 and 8.1 (and Windows Vista, but that's out of support anyway) have a similar kind of bug. They can be taken advantage of in the same kind of way: certain bad filenames make the system lock up or occasionally crash with a blue screen of death, and malicious webpages can embed those filenames by using them as image sources. If you visit such a page (in any browser), your PC will hang shortly after and possibly crash outright.
The Windows 9x-era bug was due to an error in the way that operating systems handled special filenames. Windows has a number of filenames that are "special" because they don't correspond to any actual file; instead, they represent hardware devices. These special filenames can be accessed from any location in the file system, even though they don't exist on-disk.

Fourteen people who say their names and addresses were attached to anti-net neutrality comments without their permission have asked the US Federal Communications Commission to notify other victims of the impersonation and remove fraudulent comments from the net neutrality docket.
As we've previously reported, there have been hundreds of thousands of identical comments that were ostensibly submitted to the FCC by ordinary people who hate the current net neutrality rules. But the comments appear to have been submitted by spam bots and attached to names drawn from data breaches.
People who say they were impersonated sent a letter to FCC Chairman Ajit Pai. In it, they wrote the following:

Two auto manufacturers are in legal crosshairs this week because of emissions from their diesel vehicles.
The US Department of Justice sued Fiat Chrysler of America (FCA) on Tuesday over 103,828 diesel Ram 1500s and Jeep Grand Cherokees. The DOJ claims that the cars contain “at least eight software-based features” to meddle with the cars’ emissions control systems.
And today, two plaintiffs have asked a judge to let them proceed with a class-action lawsuit against General Motors. They claim that 705,000 of the American carmaker’s diesel Silverado and Sierra HD trucks are giving off nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions in excess of what a consumer would expect and what the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) legally allows.
