I've downloaded Java for OS X Lion 2012-001 to fix the security issues with Java but when I open it to install it gives me an error message saying don't open it as it has a disk image issue (?) and may make my computer less secure or cause other issues? I don't understand why it would cause security risks when it is supposed to be a patch to fix them?!  Is it safe to go ahead and open/install?

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7)
