Impacted sites include major news outlets like BBC America, TechCrunch, 9to5Mac, 9to5Google, VentureBeat, DroneDJ, and Electrek; but also many companies that were using the's VIP offering to host corporate blogs, such as Facebook, the Wikimedia Foundation, and others. Automattic, the company behind the service has admitted to the technical issue in a series of tweets and a blog post from its engineering staff.
