You can look at:
- A collection of public threat intel reports . Lot's of reading though. I did some Splunking on it last year and at least 50% uses phishing for initial access. You could call that a structural vulnerability.
- Exploiting vulnerable public facing stuff is another initial access technique. Here someone collected all the CVEs used by ransomware crews:
- VERIS community database: collection of 8894 security incidents. If you look in the JSON there are some fields describing the vector and the actor.

Refrapt - A Python Alternative to apt-mirror
3 projects | reddit.com/r/Ubuntu | 20 Apr 2021
I tried aptly as an alternative, but it's just not designed for my use case. Dealing with creating 1 mirror per component is a nightmare, and then creating a snapshot, and then publishing it, and then repeating this on a short cycle to keep up to date. I'm also aware of debmirror, which I haven't actually tried, but where's the fun in using someone else's program when you can write your own eh?
