Who's behind the WannaCry ransomware?

It's unclear who is responsible for the global cyberattack that targeted around 300,000 machines in 150 countries. Businesses are still reeling from the fallout, and government agencies around the world are investigating. Early reports show comparisons between North Korea-linked malware and WannaCry code. But it's not an official indicator of who is behind it.

@BartZ: Looks like they have made 10.6 bitcoin so far. That's about $18,000 US dollars after conversion. Not a lot compared to the scale of the attack.
