WannaCry: Someone has emptied ransom accounts tied to the cyberattack – Aug. 3, 2017

For months, the ransom money from the massive WannaCry cyberattack sat untouched in online accounts. Now, someone has moved it.More than $140,000 worth of digital currency bitcoin has been drained from three accounts linked to the ransomware virus that hit hundreds of thousands of computers around the world in May.It’s unclear, though, who emptied the accounts and why. If the WannaCry hackers are finally trying to get their hands on the money, they’ll have to outwit law enforcement agencies from around the globe.It’s a fresh twist in the mysterious attack that cybersecurity experts have linked to a hacking group associated with North Korea.
