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
dd:89:9b:bd:dc:cd:a8:82:24:f0:06:61:38:2e:c2:83.
Please contact your system administrator.
Add correct host key in /root/.ssh/known_hosts to get rid of this message.
Offending key in /root/.ssh/known_hosts:5
RSA host key for 192.168.66.235 has changed and you have requested strict checking.
Host key verification failed.

Did you regenerate your server keys? scp is trying to tell you that the server is now different than the one that it initially presented. If you can verify that the key is indeed correct, then you can delete it's old entry in the known_hosts file. If it's not the correct key, then you have an entirely different problem to deal with.

yep sounds like you either rebuilt your box or changed a NIC or something... Unless someone is actually doing "something nasty"
To clear the error delete the line out of ~/.ssh/known_hosts
