Best way for securing XAMPP:
The primary purpose of XAMPP is to provide a quick-and-easy installation method
for Apache, MySQL, and PHP within a development environment. One of the tradeoffs
for this quick-and-easy installation is that some security settings are left incomplete—
or, at least, up to the user to determine whether they are important enough
to set.
Using the installation right out of the (virtual) box, the following are some potential
security issues:
. The MySQL administrator user has no password. (You can use a blank
password.)
. MySQL and Apache run as the same user (nobody; relevant for Linux/UNIX
and Mac only).
. Some services are accessible to the network unless you specifically disallow
access through your personal firewall.

That’s all there is to it; XAMPP has installed Apache, PHP, and MySQL on your
machine, and you can see the status of services and read more information about
it through the links in the left column when viewing http://localhost/xampp/
index.php.
