1inch contributors reported a confirmed vulnerability related to the Ethereum vanity addresses generating tool Profanity.

The involved 1inch contributors achieved proof-of-concept code allowing them to recover private keys from any vanity address generated with Profanity at almost the same time that was required to generate that vanity address.

In early 2022, some of the 1inch contributors noticed that Profanity used a random 32-bit vector to seed 256-bit private keys and suspected it could be unsafe.

Profanity is one of the most popular tools due to its high efficiency. Sadly, that could only mean that most of the Profanity wallets were secretly hacked.

Your money is NOT SAFU if your wallet address was generated with the Profanity tool. Transfer all of your assets to a different wallet ASAP!
