Have you downloaded the source code, or a compiled package?

I would probably not install the software after such a warning. It may be that someone has tampered with the package. Where did you download the package from?

Just being curious, what *exactly* was the message? Which *application* showed you that message? If the package is covered by a MD5 or SHA1 sum or GPG signature, did you try to verify its integrity manually? That said, TOR is not a malicious application.

Install unauthenticated software?

Malicous software can damage your data and take control of your system.

The packages below are not authenticated and could therefor be of malicous nature.
libevent1
tsocks
