Validating the security of your MikroTik routers network-wide

Recently, there has been a resurgence of attacks on MikroTik RouterOS devices (articles here, here and here) using multiple vulnerabilities that were fixed in April 2018 (release 6.42.1), but also falling back to some older vulnerabilities.
These new attacks primarily use an exploit in Winbox (one of MikroTiks management interfaces), to gain control of the router, and perform various malicious tasks.
