Protect local database

I have installed MySQL Server 5.0 with a INNODB database on a pc (server) were the application I have developed, running in several pcs (clients) over a LAN, would connect to.
The problem is that I had to give some guy the Windows username and password to the server pc.
How can I protect my database and the data? Would it be easy for him to access to the database or copy the files in the "data" folder and restore the database anywhere else?
I did not give him the root or any other MySQL user password. But I don't know if it is easy to crack them.
Thank you very much.
