everyone buys apple products because they don't allow hackers or viruses. that's usually on the Mac. so something that small with less applications of a Mac it is very unlikely and almost impossible

if it is not jail broken then it can't be hacked. if you jail break it, it allows for hackers to log into your ipod through ssh tunneling and change your settings. if it is jail broken then i would suggest that you change your ssh password to something complex and hard to guess so that it is less likely to get hacked.

Given how much Apple restricts and locks down their products, remotely "hacking" an iPod would be nearly impossible.

The only reasonable way that someone could legitimately access your pictures is if they had physical access to your iPod long enough to upload the files to somewhere else. If you want to make sure that never happens, keep track of your iPod and set up a 4-digit lock code in the settings.

Point is, you don't have much to worry about. "Hacking" isn't nearly as cool as Hollywood wants you to think.
