A list of vulnerabilities being abused by ransomware groups:

a. FBI's top 30: https://us-cert.cisa.gov/ncas/alerts/aa21-209a
b. NSA's top 25: https://www.nsa.gov/News-Features/News-Stories/Article-View/Article/2387347/nsa-warns-chinese-state-sponsored-malicious-cyber-actors-exploiting-25-cves/

It mostly concerns Microsoft oriented enterprise products, next to QNAP, which is a consumer product,
while HyperV was not mentioned as it was found to be vulnerable recently (a fortnight ago).

FinFisher spyware uses (abuses) UEFI-Bootkit to infest computers.

Read: https://securelist.com/finspy-unseen-findings/104322/
and https://www.kaspersky.com/about/press-releases/2021_finfisher-spyware-improves-its-arsenal-with-four-levels-of-obfuscation-uefi-infection-and-more

This government spyware can repair the original MBR and Windows Boot Manager to leave no traces behind.
Finspy spyware has been used since 2011 by governments and government secret services.
