Wrapper Damaged on Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks?
The error states. that the .app or .dmg etc is damaged and you should drag it to the trash.
Basically, this a security feature* of Mac OS X 10.8+ (in later builds of Lion as well) - called Gatekeeper.
To Fix this issue:
-> If you turn "off" gatekeeper, the error will not occur. -> Open System Preferences > Security & Privacy > General, and choose “Anywhere" under “Allow applications downloaded from”.
-> Alternatively, (not sure if this works anymore) - another way of bypassing Gatekeeper is to open an .app while holding down the Control key and choosing Open
-> Last, you can run a terminal command. Open up Terminal and run:
sudo xattr -r -d com.apple.quarantine /path/to/Eclipse.app- > Replace "Eclipse" with the name of the app you are trying to Open.

*Feature - actually means that Gatekeeper is the first step in Apple's plan to kill off all non-Mac App Store apps....
