How to make MySQL totally secure ?
What I've done so far:
1.set root password
2.grant a username with password for only do the SELECT command and can only connect from specified host name only.
I'm using that username to retrieve data from php.
but this is only a very basic thing... and yet it is totally not save at all.
I can actually log into database with any user like this way
wuaazzzzzzzahhhhpppp you're inside the database as a SUPER USER(can do any thing I want)...
Isn't it good ???? for me this is not good but very good for intruders.
Please advice what should be done guys
