Hi Folks,
Has anyone noticed that you're able to login to any cPanel user (on the same server) with the server's root or account owner password?
I just noticed today across a few of my cPanel servers that it appears that cPanel follows some form of access tree.
|- root
|-- Reseller (accessable by root + reseller pw)
|--- account (accessable by root+reseller password + account pw)
Where root is able to login to any cPanel user using the cPanel account's username, same with the reseller account owner if it owns the account.
I can't seem to find this information online anywhere.

Look in WHM -> Tweak Settings -> System -> Accounts that can access a cPanel user account
