Finland’s National Bureau of Investigation has reportedly followed Monero transactions in connection with the ongoing criminal trial of Julius Aleksanteri Kivimäki linked to the Vastaamo hack. As part of the investigation into Julius Aleksanteri Kivimäki’s criminal trial, Finland’s National Bureau of Investigation tracked Monero transactions, amounting to $160. Kivimäki stands accused of hacking a private mental health firm’s database and demanding ransom payments in various cryptocurrencies.

 

 

 

Local media reports unveiled new evidence on January 22, indicating a cryptocurrency trail leading to Kivimäki’s bank account. In October 2022, the alleged hacker demanded 40 Bitcoin, valued at $42,251, to refrain from publishing records of over 33,000 patients associated with psychotherapy service provider Vastaamo.

 

 

 

Following the non-payment of the ransom, Kivimäki reportedly targeted individual patients. According to Finnish police, the hacker received payments in Bitcoin and funneled the funds through a non-compliant Know Your Customer (KYC) exchange before converting to Monero and transferring the proceeds to a dedicated Monero wallet.
