    You'll need to block port 3306 in your firewall, be it CSF or APF or anything else. The way you do it depends on the firewall so you'd it would be best to read through it's documentation.

    You might want to take a good close look at your CSF configuration via WHM.

    The ports section should be obvious I think.
