Here's some advice (in order of relevance):
1. Disable the access by changing the password you've given out or by deleting the account you've used.
2. Login as the account in question and check whether you can access the database and the config files. If you're able to access them you'd need to use the windows access controls UI as Administrator (you don't mention the version of windows) to disable that.
3. 5.0 is rather old. Consider upgrading to 5.7 and using the Enterprise encryption to encrypt your table data.
