The unix server, mallard.auburn.edu, was updated yesterday, Sunday, August 3rd. When connecting to mallard.auburn.edu with existing connections in clients, such as SecureCRT, WinSCP, Dreamweaver, etc., you may be prompted to “Accept & Save” or “Update” the server’s new host key fingerprint. The warning message may also have an alarming message (ex. “WARNING – POTENTIAL SECURITY BREACH!”). This is a safe procedure and you should not be prompted again for that piece of software.
If you have any concerns or problems connecting to mallard.auburn.edu, please contact the OIT HelpDesk at (334) 844-4944.
