"Invalid Security Token" Error When Publishing

When publishing a post, or saving as Draft, some Bloggers are getting various error messages
Invalid security token.
or maybe
securityToken : Your request could not be processed. Please try again.
or similar messages
No further details are typically provided by the Bloggers, and apparently there's no bX- code being issued with the error.

I would bet that another scripting change was made recently, and the folks affected have cached script that's not compatible with their cookies. Apparently clearing cache and cookies is the proper solution - several Bloggers have acknowledged this solution in his/her case. Also suggest that the Blogger may need to verify how he (she) is logging in to Blogger.Com.

I've been so long to solve "security token" in my blogger, and finally i found ur helpful blog. I tried as you told to "clearing cache and cookies" but it doesn't work...

is there other way to fix it?
Thanks in advance^^

I would also look at security settings on my network and my computer - you have something blocking cookies or scripts.
