    SSH public key on copper

    Hey, gang.

    Does anyone know if the SSH public key has changed for copper?

    I tried logging in to my account today via SSH and received the usual error when they key has changed, i.e.:

    WARNING: HOST IDENTIFICATION HAS CHANGED!
    1. Either the administrator has changed the host identification, or
    2. The host has been upgraded from SSH1 to SSH2, or
    3. SOMEONE COULD BE EAVESDROPPING ON YOU RIGHT NOW
    (man-in-the-middle attack)

    It is NOT RECOMMENDED to connect to the host until you have contacted your system administrator and find out why the host identification has changed.

    Do you want to continue with the connection?
    Now, my guess is that given recent hacking, perhaps the sysadmins changed the public key on many of the servers. Just a guess. Either way, I wanted to make sure everything's on the up-and-up before I log in.

    Thanks for your time.
