Hey there! I can confirm this isn't something that gets created by cPanel, so it sounds like that specific domain could be compromised. You may want to work with a security specialist to scan and examine that site, and a professional admin can be reached here:

I'm sorry I don't have more specific details I can provide at this time but if something is created a directory where there are emails and passwords it sounds like a compromise of some sort that needs to be investigated.
