I'm working with MySQL 3.23.49a under Linux and it was installed in such a way that everybody has full access with and/or without password, and I need to protect my database or restrict the access to other users.

I have full access (mysql tables inclusive) and I've tried...

forcing MySQL to ask the password, modifying my.cnf adding

I have full access even if I type the wrong password or if I don't give any password or user (it assumes it's my linux login name), or if the login name/user is not in the mysql.user table.

I've already deleted the anonymous users and the 'root' user got a password as suggested in securitying the initial MySQL accounts. However, MySQL is still 'full open' to everybody.

There are some commands that I can't use such SHOW GRANTS or GRANT....

any idea or suggestion?
