Our server engineers are still investigating but it appears that trip processing was stalled early this morning and real-time notifications were not sent. We haven't lost any data and trips seem to be processing again. However, we're not sure that we won't be affected again if the DNS attacks continue.

We'll update here again if we run into more issues.
