local and master safe_mode and security at host

Hello All,

I have the following question:

a hosting provider has turned local safe_mode off and the master
safe_mode is on. This prevents an application/php script to work.

The provider refuses to turn safe_mode off due to security reasons. They
work with some kind of virtual hosting I had a quick look at the system
and saw a /etc /bin etcetera, in the /etc there was a php.ini where
safe_mode was Off.

a few questions:
a) is turning (local) safe_mode off a real big security risk as the
provider tells us?
b) if so why is the master safe_mode turned on?

On my own system both local and master safe_mode are turned off, and I
did not modify anything when php was installed.

another question arises: where are the local and master values set?

Is there a good page on safe_mode? Google only points me a hosting
provider that allows safe_mode to be on.

Any information is appreciated.
