Nastiest Malware 2023

I'm gathering these don't involve viruses as such? That's why I'm asking.
Pretty much just keeping your software up to date. Java is a good example for instance. There are all kinds of security holes found in Java all the time. Unfortunately it falls on Java's developers to patch them whenever those holes are discovered. Similarly, try to keep your Adobe and Windows updates up to date.
Regarding the behavior monitor, keep in mind WSA does monitor for the payload. To draw an analogy, the exploit is an open door and the payload is the bad guy trying to come through it. WSA can't help the fact that there is an open door because it can't go patch Java. However, it can stand at the door like a bouncer and make sure the bad guys don't come through it. So basically it's doing what you're talking about but in different words.
It protects nothing... get rid of it
