Shapeshift and Changelley used in laundering by Wannacry hackers

ShapeShift and Changelley, two of the most prominent crypto currency swap platforms which allow the customers to exchange any currency without having to create an account, were found to be the targets of the money laundering attempts by the wannacry hackers.

According to Reuters, the hackers are using ShapeShift, the virtual currency exchange based in Switzerland. Hackers have split the bitcoins into three wallets that are known to have been used by WannaCry malware hackers prior to sending the money to ShapeShift. They have converted the ransom money received in Bitcoins to Monero, which is known for its extended privacy features.
