    You should check these files in a text editor and compare/or compare with latest version of theme.

    Did WordFence find other similar problems on your site? I.e. malware in WordPress files etc.

    Should I just replace them with the previous versions? No other reports of malware.

    FYI: I have compared file size and they are exactly the same: thoughts?

    Try fresh download of theme and see what WF says then. But unless WF is more specific about what the issue is, I can’t see any way to resolve it.

    I think I will leave for now – I compared documents and it may have been a false positive. Will update if there are any other developments – thanks again for your time! BTW: any new themes en route?
