J. Rich) approached the woman, she suddenly rolled over the barrier wall at the top of the parking structure,” the police department wrote. "It appears that she was trying to avoid contact with the police and had severely misjudged the danger she was putting herself in.“Sgt. Rich recognized that the woman was holding her body weight up with only her hands and was likely to fall more than 40 feet to the ground. As Sgt. Rich grabbed the woman by the arms, she could no longer maintain her grip. Shell Island Security Guard B. Price immediately went to assist Sgt. Rich by taking one of the woman’s arms. Officer J. Deal (WBPD) arrived seconds later to help. The three together brought the woman back over the ledge to safety.” Credit: Wrightsville Beach Police Department via Storyful

In a blog post, Microsoft said the hacking campaign made use of four previously undetected vulnerabilities in different versions of the software and was the work of a group it dubs HAFNIUM, which it described as a state-sponsored entity operating out of China. All they needed to know were the details of Exchange server and of the account they wanted to pillage its emails, Volexity said.
