       installation in the following ways:

       o   You can set a password for root accounts.

       o   You can remove root accounts that are accessible from outside the
           local host.

       o   You can remove anonymous-user accounts.

       o   You can remove the test database, which by default can be accessed
           by anonymous users.

       mysql_secure_installation can be invoked without arguments:
