BetaNews: NTFS bug allows any website to crash Windows 7, 8.1

This looks more annoying than anything else, but: from BetaNews: NTFS bug allows any website to crash Windows 7, 8.1. “Users of older versions of Windows aren’t having the best time of it lately. Last week it was discovered that over 98 percent of those affected by the WannaCry ransomware were running Windows 7, and now a new bug has been found which can slow down and crash systems running that OS and Windows 8.1. The new bug is trivially easy to exploit, making just browsing the web potentially hazardous, and there’s currently no fix available.”
