Mac 10.8 Mountain Lion says the Geneious application bundle is damaged

Geneious versions 5.6.4 and earlier are not digitally signed, and you may run into issues with the OS describing the application bundle as damaged. This is a warning generated by Mountain Lion security settings being set to allow only apps from the Mac App Store and identified developers.  To fix this problem,  go into:

PreferencesSecurity & PrivacyGeneral and switch 'Allow applications downloaded from:' to 'Anywhere'.  

You should then be able to proceed with the installation. Geneious versions 5.6.5 onwards are digitally signed so will install under Mountain Lion with the default security settings.
