the access to the server is only for localhost ?
You can block the mysql port "3306" to the outside with the windows firewall.

Hi All --
I have been a member of this list for a while but I actually have a question that I can't
MySQL v4.1.14-nt on Win2k3 Server
I've got someone who is trying to get in, but I have locked it down. Methods used include,
but are not limited to:
No Outside Root Access
System DSNs for Web connectivity
Strong Passwords for each user
User Permissions different for each purpose
Here's the question -- It's a DoS attack and it's locking up the system for other users
Anything I can do extra via MySQL that will keep this person away, or perhaps free up the
server? I would rather not increase the max_conn_allowed var as it's already at 800 (more
than I need).
Do not have access to the Router (I wish I did, ACLs are such a great thing), but have
full Admin rights to the server.
