Free CompTIA CySA+ CS0-003 Practice Question

A cybersecurity analyst observes a surge in posts across various social media platforms promoting an exceptional offer on their company's products. The promotion is accompanied by a link using a URL shortening service and is not part of a known marketing campaign. What should the analyst do FIRST to investigate this anomaly?

  • Expand the shortened link to discern its actual destination and verify whether it points to a legitimate source or a potentially harmful website.

  • Conduct a malware analysis on endpoints to identify if any recently detected threats are related to the postings.

  • Increase the number of external intelligence feeds focused on identification of branded hashtags to check for similar patterns.

  • Review recent records of inbound network traffic to determine if there has been any unusual activity that matches the social media surge.
