I am attempting to determine the specific actions needed to secure the mysql database when you get the "Dummy connection failed to fail" message, without running "mysql_secure_installation"...

So far I've determined you should run the following queries:

DELETE FROM mysql.user WHERE User='';
DELETE FROM mysql.db WHERE Db LIKE 'test%';

Once I confirm this works I will edit the FAQ to include these commands


That and a FLUSH PRIVILEGES; seems to do it.

I'll be testing it a few times more, then update the FAQ and Automatic Install instructions.
