Free CompTIA CySA+ CS0-003 Practice Question

A security patch has been released to address a critical vulnerability in a key enterprise application. Applying the patch, however, is known to significantly reduce the performance of a module critical to user operations. What should a Cybersecurity Analyst recommend to manage the vulnerability effectively without unacceptable disruption to business activities?

  • Defer the patch deployment until there is evidence of active exploitation in the wild targeting this vulnerability.

  • Apply the patch immediately as system security takes precedence over performance concerns.

  • Rewrite the affected module of the application in-house to avoid the performance downgrade.

  • Maintain regular operations without applying the patch, accepting the risk due to business necessity.

  • Create compensating controls specific to the use of the application while the vendor works on an optimized patch.

  • Divert resources from other projects to expedite the development of a custom patch.
