$143000 Withdrawn From Ransom Wallets

Those victims were numerous, too: as well as individuals, WannaCry affected the UK's National Health Service, the Russian Interior Ministry, French automaker Renault, telecoms operator Telefonica in Spain, and FedEx in the US.

Ransoms worth over $140,000 have been moved from digital wallets used by the hackers behind the WannaCry malware.

The cybercriminals behind the WannaCry ransomware attacks appear to have chose to cash out on their crimes and have removed over $140,000 worth of bitcoins from their online wallets. Bitcoin currency is now worth around $2,740, resulting in the six-figure payday for the people behind the ransomware attack.

The report notes that security experts and government agencies believe North Korea was responsible for the attack, which was likely "more political than money-driven". Victims of WannaCry were generally directed to pay between $300 and $600 in order to remove the block.

The awards selection committee has also recommended 17 names for the Arjuna award, including two para-athletes. Myneni is a victor of mixed doubles gold and a silver in the men's doubles at the 2014 Incheon Asian Games.

The people behind the WannaCry ransomware campaign, which affected hundreds of thousands of devices around the world in May, have finally emptied the Bitcoin wallets to which their victims directed payments.

The cryptocurrency tracking firm believes that the criminals are now converting this money into Monero. "We're following the movement of funds being sent out of the WannaCry wallets", Elliptic co-founder Tom Robinson told CNBC. "We continue to work with law enforcement to support their efforts in tracing ownership of these funds". With this split, everyone received the same number of coins that they had in bitcoin in the new bitcoin cash currency too.

According to Elliptic's data, the hackers amassed more than $144,000 worth of bitcoin in the three accounts.
