After upgrading from version 5.24.1 to 5.24.4 (Joomla) i get the

System Status: Critical File 'C:\wamp\www\Joomla\administrator\components\com_civicrm\civicrm\bower_components/google-code-prettify/styles/demo.html' presents a security risk and should be deleted. Same for: C:\wamp\www\Joomla\administrator\components\com_civicrm\civicrm\bower_components/qunit/addons

Can I remove these files?

yes, its safe to remove the folder as it was part of security advisory.


  • Thank you, i did not see that link. I have removed the file and the folder without any errors.

  • FYI, the advisory has been amended to clarify that you may still need to remove the files manually after the upgrade, depending on exactly how you do the upgrade.

  • Yes, I understood, but critical warnings after the upgrade (new session application) where new for me. I try always to install every version seperated, but now i had to do some in one upgrade.
