How to Verify github SSH Keys (for n00bs/Windows users)

github reported that there was a security vulnerability related to SSH keys (public keys) and is asking users to please verify their keys. For those of us who are n00bs and/or Windows users (I’m both), you’ll need to issue this command in git-bash:

ssh-keygen -l

This will show the fingerprint that you can use to compare against what is on the site.  Enjoy.
