Is it possible to infect a managed switch, or other network equipment?

Hey, I just bought a Tp-Link 8-port easy smart switch from a reseller in my country. The switch is brand new and working, but the box appears to have been opened.

I was wondering, is it possible to such devices to get viruses? Maybe thru installing a fake firmware?

Does resetting it and reinstalling the Tp-Link oficial firmware a good measure against it? Or is it simply paranoia?
