If you open the backup file, you should find a file in there containing MySQL dumps for each database. If you re-create the database manually in cPanel, you can import that .sql file respectively. That way you do not have to restore a full backup and risk losing any changes made since that backup.

Hope this helps!

Hello,

You could review /usr/local/cpanel/logs/access_log to see if any unfamiliar IP addresses accessed cPanel under a certain username and viewed the "MySQL Databases" page.

Thank you.
