Sounds like a messed up nonce. Or a your going into a restricted area. If your getting this as a result of tinkering with a plugin that uses nonces, take a look at this explanation of nonces:

Otherwise, look at what capabilities you have as a user, and look to see what capabilities are wrapped around whatever action/area is triggering that error message. Its possible a plugin, or another admin might have changed your role/capabilities.

For the most part, its almost certain its being caused by a plugin if its not another user changing your role. Start turning plugins off one-by-one to see which is the culprit. If the error is preventing you from using the plugin interface, then just start ripping them out of the plugin directory -don't forget mu-plugins if it applies to you, and remember to back them up before you remove them
