I'm working on the de-ice.net level 1 disk. I had an issue that was solved by just doing an apt-get update, then upgrade. Now however, I have a new issue.

With every single attempt on the target, I get the error "Error: ssh2 protocol error" and the status screen is flooded with them.

If the password is in the file, it does find it I guess. I stuck it in a small file, and it worked. The files im using are located in /pentest/passwords/wordlists. So does this sound familiar to anyone? What might be the issue?
