HP Fortify SCA - erroneous Insecure RandomnessOpen in a New Window

HP Fortify SCA flags math.Random in JQuery (js/jquery-1.7.1.min.js) as High Vulnerability Insecure Randomness. JQuery and GitHub forum moderators disagree (links below). The Fortify explanation is to use window.crypto.random, which I have done (see screenshot) but SCA does not accept this. Any suggestions?

Thank you,

Dear All,

I was running fortify check on an Android project.I got INPUT VALIDATION & REPRESNTATION Fortify issue in following code:





Following is the issue reported by Fortify:

The method <static>() in loads a library without specifying an
absolute path, which could result in the program using a malicious library supplied by
an attacker.

AFAIK,i am already using the absolute path where library is present in Android File System .Can you please point what is wrong with the above code block? 

Thanks & Regards,
