    IT IS POSSIBLE THAT SOMEONE IS DOING SOMETHING NASTY!
    Someone could be eavesdropping on you right now (man-in-the-middle attack)!
    It is also possible that the RSA host key has just been changed.
    The fingerprint for the RSA key sent by the remote host is
    21:ae:87:63:2c:0e:9d:8b:62:9a:f1:f9:3a:3d:49:74.
    Please contact your system administrator.
    Add correct host key in /Users/xxxxxx/.ssh/known_hosts to get rid of this message.
    Offending key in /Users/xxxxx/.ssh/known_hosts:1
    RSA host key for 10.0.1.5 has changed and you have requested strict checking.

    remove the known_hosts file

    sometimes simply closing out of terminal and relaunching will do it.

    I experienced this earlier today, and being completely terminal-illiterate, had no idea what to do. After a quick google search, I learned that you need only to navigate to ~/.rss/known_hosts and delete everything in the file. At least, that's what I did.
