In case you're using Apachefriends XAMPP on Windows, you can turn off
the MySQL daemon's network listener by editing
C:\apachefriends\xampp\mysql\bin\my.cnf

Under [mysqld] add a "skip-networking" directive:

  # The MySQL server
  [mysqld]
  skip-networking
  socket          = mysql
  ...

Local programs can still connect to the DB via localhost socket, but
internet worms are locked out.
