A massive DDoS against Dyn Managed DNS is causing trouble for various services, such as partial AWS (US East), Intercom, Twitter and more. Fortrabbit Apps, mostly in US1 but potentially in EU2 as well, might be partially affected - it depends on whether the Apps are using external 3rd party services, whose DNS records cannot be resolved.

We keep monitoring the issue and let you know when it is resolved or if other new information become available. If you need to contact us, but cannot use our support service Intercom due to the DNS issues, please send us an email to support@fortrabbit.com instead.
