Replciation Security

I believe that I have been hacked because MYSQL administrator, Replication Status is showing a entry that I have not set-up and I am seeing query's appearing in the Server Logs that I have not sent.

I know that I am only to blame here because I have ploughed straight into writing my web application without taking notice of any security procedures. I running MYSQL 5.0.67 on windows platform and would like any advice on how to stop the replication and how is might have happened.

Reading, I think its because when its first installed I not set-up a password for root and I can successfully connect using mysql -u root..

Please advice how I can stop the replication and how to set-up a password for root because if I try SHOW GRANTS it just drops to a -> and shows nothing and if I try and change the password for SET PASSWORD FOR ''@'localhost' = PASSWORD('newpwd');
it also drops to -> and appears to do nothing....

please help,
