I am just wondering if it is possible to run MySQL (or any DB for that matter) as a hidden service on Tor.
The main point of all this would be to hide the servers location/IP rather than to prevent people sniffing user/pass info etc.
There would be no webserver running, just the MySQL server.
I figured with proxychains properly configured I would be able to connect to the server using the command below or similar
proxychains mysql -u USER -p'PASS' -h a1b2c3d4e5.onion DBNAME
Any suggestions here are very welcome. Info on this seems hard to come by on the net.
