No problem, I've submitted a patch for this issue - if it looks good and the character-set looks appropriate could you approve the report on here and merge the patch to main?

(The new version uses RandomNumberGenerator which is a CSPRNG offered by Microsoft as part of the .NET standard System.Security.Cryptography library)
