By locally i mean from hosts on the same subnet. By altering this line you just refuse remote connections to the database. All the applications on the servers on the same subnet that has access to the specific database will keep working
I think K2 made a mistake with Cypher server where the DB was prolly on the same server or not restricted, letting ppl modify it at will. For example my GM account was 11 chars long and completely unrelated to the character name (Kenjuro_Orc), yet they managed to find the accountid and password. In all my time as a GM, I never shared any of my accountids or even gave bits of info about them. How the hell they managed to hack that one but not the other ones? It was well known that hackers could edit Cypher DB but not Ares, Diez, etc. Sure, later on there were other bugs on the web that let ppl SQL inject, but the cypher case was different.
What I know is that has been secured know and the topology u propose is what they use. Its a pretty common scenario. What they lack of is a director, a manager with experience in ALL these subjects that organizes the whole circus and makes it work efficiently. Start making procedures for everything, create a solid organization, priorities, clear communication channels, etc. If u dont have all these, they will always complain about lack of resources. Obviously there's lack of resources if everything is a mess.
