Wordfence alert about simple-google-recaptcha.php | WordPress.org

Hello,a day or two ago Wordfence (WF) began flagging alerts on several sites; all are fully up to date.

Modified plugin file: wp-content/plugins/simple-google-recaptcha/simple-google-recaptcha.php

I notice on the SGR site that it was modified three days ago. Was there perhaps a new SGR release that did not bump the version?

The first flagges line is 133, the trailing comma in the modified line:

Original: Entity::BADGE_HIDE => new Entity(__(‘Hide reCAPTCHA v3 badge’, ‘simple-google-recaptcha’))

Modified: Entity::BADGE_HIDE => new Entity(__(‘Hide reCAPTCHA v3 badge’, ‘simple-google-recaptcha’)),

Another example is line 416:

Original: private function responseParse(string $response): array
Modified: private function recaptchaResponseParse(string $response)

Thanks in advance for the help. I will be glad to provide additional information if needed.
