You can get around this a few ways.
1. Easiest and Most Recommended: Select the file in Finder, right/control-click on the file and choose “Open”. You will be asked if you want to open the file, even if it is from an unknown developer.
2. Slightly More Complicated, but Sometimes Preferable: If you are not afraid of Terminal.app (found in the
/Applications/Utilities folder of Finder), you can remove the “Quarantine” attribute using this command:
xattr -r -d com.apple.quarantine /path/to/folder
For example, if all of the files are in ~/Downloads/ then you would use:
xattr -r -d com.apple.quarantine ~/Downloads/
xattr -r -d com.apple.quarantine "$HOME/Downloads/"
man xattr into Terminal.app for more information about the
xattr command, but the short version is that
-r means “recursive” and
-d means “delete the following attribute”.
