The Week Ending June 8

Topping this week's roundup of those having a rough week is Facebook, which faces yet another embarrassing customer privacy controversy, this time over a bug that switched the settings for some 14 million users from "private" to "public."

Also making the list this week are HP employees, more of whom now face layoffs under a reorganization initiative; Google, which lost out to Microsoft in bidding for GitHub; NetApp's CTO, who apparently left the company after a corporate restructuring made his job unnecessary; and the MyHeritage genealogy website, which was the apparent victim of a security breach.
