Ransomware has become a major threat to computer systems in recent years, as high-profile attacks have locked users out of personal computers, hospitalscity governments, and even The Weather Channel. Now, security researchers have discovered that another device that might be at risk: a DSLR camera.

 

Check Point Software Technologies issued a report today that detailed how its security researchers were able to remotely install malware on a digital DSLR camera. In it, researcher Eyal Itkin found that a hacker can easily plant malware on a digital camera. He says that the standardized Picture Transfer Protocol is an ideal method for delivering malware: it’s unauthenticated and can be used with both Wi-Fi and USB. The report notes that individual with an infected Wi-Fi access point could deploy it at a tourist destination to pull off an attack, or infect a user’s PC.
