I am not sure which version TA you're using. I found below in props.conf in default directory of Splunk_TA_windows version 5.0.0. More about renaming sourcetypes.

## To provide backward compatibility for WinEventLog and XmlWinEventLog data
## These will be deprecated in future
[WinEventLog:Security]
rename = wineventlog

If your props.conf have the above attribute, then comment rename command (and restart splunk) OR try renaming wineventlog to WinEventLog:Security in props.conf under local directory to see if this solves your problem.
