Can a digital camera be "hacked" in the ransomware sense?

Increasingly, I hear of hackers gaining control over digital devices for their own gain or merely to be a nuisance.

I don't know but suspect that when tethered to another device such as a computer, malware can be unknowingly passed. Blue Tooth might also be a conduit to the camera logic. Maybe something is hiding in the "cloud" to be downloaded? Either way, I've decided to repatriate anything in the cloud to something back here on Earth.

Has anyone knowledge or experience if this is a distinct possibility? I'd be interested.
