    If someone logs into his cPanel account and changes his password (http://domain:2082/frontend/x/passwd/index.html) then only the password of the account is changed.

    Services like FTP, Mail, MySQL, etc. don't get synchronized in any way unless the owner of the server changes the password thru WHM.

    I think this is a huge issue if someone his account is hacked and is used for mail spam, ftp warez or http replacement.
    Because if someone is hacked and changes his password afterwards, the "hacker" could still access the website in many ways with the old password.

    In my opinion the "change password" feature should be fixed in one of the following ways:

    a. run the sync commands
    b. remove completely (and force custom ftp, sql, mail login accounts to prevent overall damage)
    c. replace by: commit to server owner a "change password" request
    d. suspend account untill the 'root' has synced the services

    Go on, have a guess
    You should log it in bugzilla if it's a reproducable bug, if it doesn't already exists there.
