Remove outdated java present in Elasticsearch installation


We are running Elasticsearch 7.9.1 in our environment. We have been reported that there is outdated java version installed at path /usr/share/elasticsearch/jdk. Though we are not using it to run Elasticsearch. But this has to be removed as it is marked as critical security finding. I would like to know,

  1. Is there a standard way of removing this version of Java bundled with Elasticsearch
  2. If not then is it safe to just delete contents from this location without affecting Elasticsearch
