Topping this week's roundup of those having a rough week are hundreds of CA Technologies employees who faced layoffs this week after Broadcom completed its $18.9 billion acquisition of CA.

Also making the list this week are Apple, which lost its $1 trillion market cap this week; Oracle, for losing Amazon’s consumer business as a data warehouse customer; WordPress and WooCommerce for dealing with software flaws that could allow an attacker to take control of a Web site; and Foxconn for being hit with a controversy over its new assembly plant in Wisconsin.
