#AceNewsReport – May.10: A bot is thought to be behind the posting of thousands of messages to the FCC’s website, in an apparent attempt to influence the results of a public solicitation for feedback on net neutrality #AceNewsDesk reports
A Bot Is Flooding the FCC’s Website With Fake Anti-net Neutrality Comments Published on May 10, 2017 at 06:40AM a sizeable portion of those comments are fake, and are repeating the same manufactured response again and again, ZDNet reports.
So much so that more than 58,000 identical comments have been posted since the feedback doors were opened, now representing over one-in-ten comments on the FCC’s feedback docket.
The comment reads as following: “The unprecedented regulatory power the Obama Administration imposed on the internet is smothering innovation, damaging the American economy and obstructing job creation. I urge the Federal Communications Commission to end the bureaucratic regulatory overreach of the internet known as Title II and restore the bipartisan light-touch regulatory consensus that enabled the internet to flourish for more than 20 years.” ZDNet claims that all other comments follow the same pattern: the bot appears to cycle through names in an alphabetical order, leaving the person’s name, and postal address and zip code. And some — if not all — of these comments are fake, the publication adds, claiming that it reached out to the people and many of them confirmed that they had not left any comments on the website.
