All UEFI stops is someone installing an OS, it doesn't in any way prevent the OS from being infected in the way it normally is by malware.

I don't want to position myself as a defender of the value of UEFI. It's not something that I understand very well. But just to be clear, as near as I understand, what it does, in theory, when it works as it should, is that informs you, at boot time, that the OS has been infected.
