Possible break-in attept

  • Posted February 9, 2014


I was playing around with a Droplet today as I am new to the VPS world and wanted to experiment a bit. I was wondering why when I try to ssh into the droplet I get this message:

Address maps to, but this does not map back to the address - POSSIBLE BREAK-IN ATTEMPT!

How should I proceed?

Have you recently recreated your droplet? That usually happens when you have a droplet on one IP and a newer droplet on the same IP. <br> <br>If you’ve done that, you can get rid of that message by running: <br><pre>ssh-keygen -R</pre>
