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 fr om 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 lim it in DBGovernor is it possible to truncate such attack like I write above ?
