    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
    24:d8:48:ad:0d:3d:05:31:e2:47:8a:a2:47:a6:28:69.
    Please contact your system administrator.
    Add correct host key in /Users/Adam/.ssh/known_hosts to get rid of this message.
    Offending key in /Users/Adam/.ssh/known_hosts:1
    RSA host key for 192.168.0.4 has changed and you have requested strict checking.
    Host key verification failed.

    I got this message in terminal when i tried to login. I was logging in because when i launched installer i got a message saying there was a problem with installer (root:wheel), so i was going to fix it. Now i'm worried, and this all stemmed from me trying to free up disk space using boss tools. What should i do?

    restore in iTunes
    if you have a virus, since disk use is disabled (you can't run scan), the best thing to do would be restore in iTunes to avoid further corruption

    Just use Terminal to remove "/Users/Adam/.ssh/known_hosts"

    Code:
    cd /Users/Adam/.ssh/
    sudo rm known_hosts
    (enter your password, it won't show up)

    This is fine. It happens every time my iPod changes RSA keys. Just do what Apple Freak said and try again.
