According to a CERT bulletin, the routers could easily become the victim of “arbitrary command injection”, which would potentially allow hackers to gain remote access to your network.

The R7770 Power Edition 1GD5/OC and R7750 Power Edition 1GD5/OC also have the dust removal technology, but they also boast the customizable MSI TransThermal thermal design, which allows users to slap another fan on top of the existing...
