SSH Key Change?

Has the SSH host key changed recently? When I try to either use SSH or SCP to access my files, I get a warning that the key I have cached does not match the key on the server.

I just want to make sure that I’m not suffering from a man-in-the-middle attack. Has anyone else seen this?

Unfortunately, I have seen it several times; Dreamhost does not generally notify you when they change the keys. The only way I have found to be “sure” the new keys are ligitimate, is to write support and wait for their answer. :frowning:


If they failed your host over to a new one, the key has most likely been changed. Is your host one of the ones listed in dreamhoststatus as being swapped out?
