Vulnerability intelligence-as-a-service outfit vFeed has compiled a list of the top 10 most exploited vulnerabilities from 2020, and among them are SMBGhost, Zerologon, and SIGRed.
What is vFeed?
vFeed analyzes a variety of vendor advisories and third-party sources, correlates the gathered info, and compiles and constantly updates a vulnerability and threat intelligence database/feed that SOC and security teams can use to prioritize the remediation of security issues.

The company compiled the top 10 most exploited vulnerabilities from 2020 list based on how many proof-of-concept exploits are out there (per vulnerability), how easily the vulnerability can be exploited, how many malware-based campaigns are using it, and so on.
The list includes:
