Hi Christoph,


It sounds like you have people trying to connect to the MySQL instance over the internet. That is probably an IP address of the person connecting.

o) firewall this machine so port 3306 (or whever mysqld listens) is not contactable from anywhere.
o) Make sure you do not have wildcard grants (%) for hosts.

SELECT user,host FROM mysql.user;


I'd suggest reviewing this document:
