At startup, AMiner will quite likely print out some security warnings to increase transparency. They are here just to remind you of the limitations the current implementation. They should be the same as for nearly all other programs on your platform, just that others do not tell you. See the source code documentation for a short explanation, why a given part of the implementation is not that secure as it could be when leveraging the security features a platform could provide you.
