Free CompTIA Security+ SY0-701 Practice Question

An employee in the finance department received an email with a spreadsheet attachment claiming to contain urgent budget corrections required by their manager. However, the spreadsheet is actually a file-based threat designed to compromise the user's system. What is the BEST action the employee should take to mitigate this threat?

  • Report the email to the organization's security team for analysis before any further action is taken.

  • Ignore the email and the attachment because it might be spam, and then delete it.

  • Forward the email to their manager to confirm its authenticity before opening the attachment.

  • Open the attachment to verify its content, then proceed with the tasks if it seems legitimate.
