Secure connection using ODBC connection


I currently connect to many MySql databases stored in a hosting server. I remotely access them via ODBC connections. The question I have is that is it safe? Can the information going through the internet be intercepted? If so, how can I make it more secure?

Re: Secure connection using ODBC connection

Information coming over the internet can be intercepted if some one can tap into your ISP connection. You could make it safer by encrypting the data sent but this will have an effect on performance
The best solution is the simplest one that meets all requirements.
