[monero-project/monero] Monero seed “encryption” is vulnerable to known-plaintext key recovery (#4104)

Insults aside, this seems like something that should be addressed but isn’t particularly high priority as this is only useful if the attacker has the encrypted key and some extra information about the target’s wallet. Because users are repeatedly warned to never give away the seed and keep it stored securely, regardless of whether it is encrypted or not, I seriously doubt that anybody’s funds are at risk because of this.
