Blocking 3306 with iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 3306

Just added these lines to our server firewall:

Code:
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 3306 -s 127.0.0.1 -d 127.0.0.1 -j ACCEPT
iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --dport 3306 -j DROP

Even though mysql is configured to correctly only listen on port 127.0.0.1 we still see these mysql log file notes on a daily basis:

Code:
-rw-r----- 1 mysql adm 7554 Dec  3 13:34 error.log
$:/var/log/mysql# cat error.log
