In the bug, any number string in the comments section is being converted into a Vimeo video.  For a temporary fix, Jetpack recommended deactivating the Shortcode Embed module.

While the bug was simultaneously annoying and humorous, a fix arrived with 3.9.6.  If you already updated to 3.9.5, Jetpack and WordPress recommend you do so again, to patch this bug.
