Free CompTIA CySA+ CS0-003 Practice Question

During a routine audit, a security analyst notices a consistent and unexpected increase in resource usage on a typically low activity file server. This elevation does not align with any authorized system updates or user operations. What is the MOST probable explanation for this observation?

  • The server’s cooling system is malfunctioning, resulting in performance inconsistencies.

  • The system may be compromised by unauthorized software performing resource-intensive operations.

  • Routine software updates are pending, causing a temporary rise in system resource demand.

  • A recent application misconfiguration is causing known processes to utilize more resources than usual.
