  1. Hi all, An article on wikihow on Secure Login Script, in Part 2, under the heading Configure the MySql Database states that we can create previliges for users. It then goes on to create a user with details : USER : "sec_user". Password "eKcGZr... WU" It then states that "Remember it doesn't need to be a password that you can remember so make it as complicated as possible." The question is regarding this last statement. Why don't we need to remember this password? Also I would like to ask what other security measure do we need to take as regards the MySql database? Also things like settings in the config files etc. Thanks all !
  2. HI - I work in a small company where I am solely responsible for all IT developments / infrastructure. My s/w is pretty solid, however I am a couple of "educated users" who insist on going into the database with their own downloaded reporting tools and pulling data out of MySql. Then of course something breaks and I have to clean up their mess. Politics prevents me from shutting them out of the systems entirely however, in the name of "security" I could do something to either prevent a connection, or obfuscate the data or something ... but I don't know what woudl be the best technical approach. Dealing with it through meetings and conversation etc has not had any effect. I need a technical solution. Many thanks for your suggestions !
