Free CompTIA Security+ SY0-701 Practice Question

An organization’s IT department noticed that specific entries that should be present in the security logs are missing, and there are sudden gaps in the logs’ regular time intervals. In the absence of any scheduled maintenance or known service disruptions, what is the MOST likely explanation for this disparity?

  • The log retention policy automatically purged older log entries.

  • The logging service crashed due to a software error, thus not recording data.

  • Logs were deliberately deleted or altered by an attacker.

  • Log generation was paused due to insufficient storage space.
