It's a warning from your browser that the security certificate used on
this site is not valid and you should not trust it. You can download
it and "trust" it anyway, there should be a button or something you
can click on in that message/dialog.

As Sinclair sad, i don't think that installing eBox (Never used it
myself but it looks like webmin) is anything you need on a normal
workstation. The thinks you probably most need to configure is the
things you in have System Settings and for them you don't need eBox.

Installing services you don't need or know how to configure is also a
security risk so my suggestion is to uninstall eBox and apache as you
most likely don't need them.
