I have received this message

PuTTY Security Alert


The server's host key does not match the one PuTTY has cached in the registry. This means that either the server administrator has changed the host key, or you have actually connected to another computer pretending to be the server.
The new rsa2 key fingerprint is:
ssh-rsa followed by a lot of numbers and colons
If you were expecting this change and trust the new key, hit YEs to update PuTTY's cache and continue connecting. If you want to carry on connecting but without updating the cashe, hit No. If you want to abondon the connection completely, hit Cancel. Hitting Cancel is the ONLY guaranteed safe choice.

Even if I hit Cancel, this message comes back after a couple of seconds. Sometimes it times out.

Anyone know what this is and how to get rid of it?
