MySQL Brute-Force Protection

According to Wikipedia "MySQL is the world's second most widely used relational database management system (RDBMS) and most widely used open-source RDBMS"

The flip side of this popularity is high number of various brute-force tools that are easily available on the Internet.

Your MySQL Server might be at risk if it allows remote connections. Just look at the Application event log, there should be the entries like below:

MySQL brute-force attempts

Traces of MySQL brute-force attempts in Application event log

You may be surprised, but this is only the tip of the iceberg, enable general logging for your MySQL server and wait a couple of hours.

Most likely the general log will look like below:

MySQL brute-force attempts

MySQL brute-force attempts in General Query Log

These failed connection attempts are dictionary based brute-force attacks which may affect the performance and security of your server.

RdpGuard is the brute-force protection software that helps you protect your MySQL Server from password guessing brute-force attacks.

For Windows Vista/7/8/8.1/10/11 and Windows Server 2008/2012/2016/2019/2022

Our customers say

"This sotware is really great. It's a relief. Because my server is constantly under attack. Thanks RdpGuard" - Joaquim De Sousa Marques

"Nice product. I used to implement something similiar in a low-tech and cumbersome manner via a script called TSBlock (not mine). This makes it much easier and is well worth the pricetag for SMB's." - J. Johnson

"Absolutely amazed at your product. We are a church in the North Dallas area, and I discovered this morning multiple failed logon attempts via our Remote Access Server. A friend suggested your product, so I immediately downloaded the trial. It had a list of about five blocked IP addresses in minutes, and that was enough to lead me to push the BUY button. Over the past 10-15 minutes the list is now about thirty with at least a third being international attempts to break into our system. Thanks for a great product. You may have just saved us much grief." - John Hallford

"Love the software. RDP on our Windows servers is just ridiculous. We would block it in the router but we have lots of old-time customers that would have issues." - Scott Hirsch

"Love the software! Makes it easier than tailoring VB Scripts!!" - Nick Brennan

"It's a great product - really stopping those RDP attackers :-)" - Dave, UK

"First of all: Your application is very (!!!) useful and I like it very much securing my 2012 R2 server. RdpGuard is the best solution, I found on the market and after 10 minutes of testing it I ordered the fully-featured version. :-)" - Carsten Baltes
