Furthermore this may not only endanger your mobile phone or your personal computer, but your DSLR camera as well. Recently security agencies have recently issued warnings that ransomware or malware may attack DSLR cameras, because researchers at cyber Security Company Check Point Software Technologies have noticed that modern cameras are connected to USB and WiFi, therefore, hackers can control their data.



Moreover Security officer at Check Point Software Technologies has said that any smart device, including DSLR cameras, is a soft target for hackers. Apparently if your camera is attacked, your photographs can be hacked and ransom money can be asked in lieu of that. Modern cameras nowadays, pictures are not shot on film, therefore, the International Imaging Industry Association has created a standard protocol, termed as Picture Transfer Protocol (PTP), from which pictures are transferred from the camera to the PC. Perhaps although the main emphasis in this protocol lies on the transfer of photographs, a dozen commands are given to firmware updates of the cameras.
