    There's been another security breach at Automattic, the company beind the popular WordPress.com blogging platform. The content platform said Wednesday that a hacker has weaseled into its WordPress.com servers, revealing potentially sensitive information for VIP users. Founder Matt Mullenweg addressed the issue in a blog post.

    "Automattic had a low-level (root) break-in to several of our servers, and potentially anything on those servers could have been revealed," he wrote. Automattic is the company behind WordPress. "We have been diligently reviewing logs and records about the break-in to determine the extent of the information exposed, and re-securing avenues used to gain access. We presume our source code was exposed and copied."
