    On one of my server someone account have been broken.

    In about 3minutes I have in my MySQL logs errors in connection to database using user "root".
    All connection are from localhost. But in MySQL log I can't see which user (account) is trying to connect do mySQL server as "root"
    I about 3 minutes I had over 800 000 connection do MySQL - all of them was failed.

    But this failed connection made the DoS on my MySQL server ... becouse of number of connections


    If I will limit number of connection per LVE/account - is DBGovernor limiting real user account or only "login" or "prefix" of MySQL user ?
    If I enable such limit in DBGovernor is it possible to truncate such attack like I write above ?

    The documentation for MySQL Governor is available at:

    CloudLinux Documentation

    It looks to associate databases with the cPanel account based on the existing database mapping that cPanel uses. I'm not sure it's designed to prevent attacks on the MySQL service. You may find more information or support DB Governor itself directly on the Cloud Linux forums:

    Thank you.
