Hi,
I deleted/terminated a cpanel account for example test.com

now if i go to test.com it shows the exact website as another site example.com on the server and also uses the other sites database after getting deleted

why is this happening?

is this a secutity issue?

This is interesting. Would it not make sense to tie the default vhost to the hostname, by default, thus preventing this from happening in the first place?
