The wife bought a digital frame, and before I plug it in, I need to know how to avoid a potential infection.

FWIW it's a "Global 2.4" digital photo frame."

Google was not a great help, but maybe I didn't search correctly.

The easiest way to make sure of that is keeping your antivirus and antimalware stuff up-to-date.

Scary stuff!!
May be wise to scan it with your anti-virus program. The infected devices may no longer be available, but who knows.
