My PCI scan shows this:

The database allows any remote system the ability to connect to it. It is recommended to limit direct access to trusted systems because databases may contain sensitive data, and new vulnerabilities and exploits are discovered routinely for them. For this reason, it is a violation of PCI DSS section 1.3.7 to have databases listening on ports accessible from the Internet, even when protected with secure authentication mechanisms.
How can I disable open database access using WHM or CPanel?

Thanks!

partially right close the firewall and attest to their IP's being white listed (most require that their IP's be white listed )
Ok, so how about:
bind-address=127.0.0.1
in /etc/my.cnf
