Slack: Connectivity problems can last all day

The instant messaging service Slack has been struggling with major problems since last night – and they could continue for a long time. The problems would be DNS, Slack indicated it could take a day to fix.

Slack is so unreachable that even the status web pages of the service cannot be reached are. The cause is that Slack for its own domain is temporarily had stored an invalid DNSSEC configuration – with DNSSEC the authenticity and integrity of DNS entries can be cryptographically ensured. Now Slack has to wait for these entries, which are now distributed in many DNS caches around the world, to run, which should happen in the course of today.

Until this is done, users can temporarily (!) Enter an alternative DNS server without DNSSEC support in the router itself, for example 9.9.9.10through which Slack can be reached.
