"Invalid Security Token" Error When Publishing, 2007

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 Blogger Engineering - and apparently there's no bX- code being issued with the error. It's probably a variant of the "403 Forbidden" 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.
(Update 2015): This symptom is now being reported as "Invalid Security Token Error 403".

What Is "ghs.google.com" vs. "ghs.googlehosted.com"?

With Google Domains registered custom domains becoming more normal, we are seeing one odd attention to detail, expressed as confusion in Blogger Help Forum: Learn More About Blogger.My website uses "ghs.google.com" - am I supposed to use "ghs.googlehosted.com", instead?It's good to be attentive to detail, particularly with custom domain publishing. This is one detail that may not require immediate attention, however.
