Here's a message I received:


hey the other day I was using a SQL admin program to load up a sql table in to my d/b , and it showed me all the databases you have in your server. I didnt have access to them but I could see their names and all. Doesnt really matter but just letting you know incase its not supposed to be that way.


How can I protect this or is there a way???

Did you set the root mysql password on the server (there's an option to do that in WHM)? If not, might want to do that. :)

YukFoo,

I noticed this the other day as well. One of my customers brought it to my attention. I'm not sure how you would get prevent it. BTW, setting the MySQL root password has nothing to do with this (though you do want to have that set!).
