Free CompTIA Security+ SY0-701 Practice Question

An employee in the finance department receives an email from the CEO asking for immediate review of an attached document labeled 'Financial_Report_2023.xls'. The employee was not expecting any reports today. What potential threat could this file pose if the employee fails to take proper security measures before opening it?

  • The file could be a duplicate of a file already present on the network, leading to data redundancy.

  • The attachment is likely a template for future financial reports and opening it would set a new standard format.

  • The file may contain malicious code that can execute upon opening, compromising the integrity of the employee's system.

  • Opening the file will automatically archive older financial reports for efficiency purposes.
