A cyber-incident response analyst is investigating a suspected cryptocurrency miner on a company’s server.
Which of the following is the FIRST step the analyst should take?
- Create a full disk image of the server’s hard drive to look for the file containing the malware.
- Run a manual antivirus scan on the machine to look for known malicious software.
- Take a memory snapshot of the machine to capture volatile information stored in memory.
- Start packet capturing to look for traffic that could be indicative of command and control from the miner.
