Installation of *.pkg fails to due to invalid digital signature

I am a facing a strange issue, installation of quite a few pcakges downloaded from known/trusted sites fails due to invalid signature. To name a few, MS Silverlight, Google video chat pluging and GNU Emacs.



Please see the attached image for error message when I tried to install google chat pkg. It is strange that, digital signature verfication fails every single pacakge. Any clue what is wrong and how can this problem be resolved.
