We have a inner master page wth custom css that our departments are "supposed" to be able to edit however it is not working that way.
I am the farm administrator and site collection admin.  I went to remove a user from the master page and received an error.  Can you tell me what might be causing this and how I can fix this...
The only workaround I have right now is to turn off security validation in Central Admin but I can't do this each time a user needs to add a user or add an object to a library...

System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException: The security validation for this page is invalid. Click Back in your Web browser, refresh the page, and try your operation again.

They are probably using custom code, and in that custom code the yare not using AllowUnsafeUpdates correctly.

Well I'm so glad the consultants used custom code so that they could leave me with it.

How do I fix this where it can allow safe updates???

You will have to implement the solution in the code, recompile, test and redeploy.
