Mac Annoyance - OS X claims file damaged when it is not

Downloaded Eclipse Tar file, unpacked and moved to Applications Folder. Trying to open both by double click and right click-open showed the error popup: eclipse.app is damaged and cannot be opened . So I downloaded again -- same message. Choose another Mirror - same message.

So I took help from Google as usual,

Dear Apple: Why do you say that the file is damaged, when it really depends on security settings ?!?!? Outrageous !!
After changing the security settings temporarily to  Allow Applications downloaded from Anywhere , it was perfectly fine to use Eclipse.
