Invalid Referer detected - check that your browser sends the Referer header.
The link you would have been redirected to is: http://piwik.org/faq/how-to-install/#faq_98

Fixes #3751
did you mean the message was not clear? hopefully this one is slightly better. But the error is accurate: you are not sending the referer header and this is required for security reasons.
