    You have to enter this code in the Terminal.

    I have used this command to disable false security warnings on my MBP.

    You can also enter a very similar command to disable these warnings on a per file type basis. For example, Lion (and Snow Leopard) falsely claim that WMV format movies are applications. Alas, I don't remember the exact syntax anymore.

    Thanks, but that just turns ALL warnings off, which isn't what I'm looking for.

    Well, in my case Lion think that every file downloaded from internet or received via email is an application and displays those warnings every time, that's why I had to disable them altogether.
