Is it Possible to Hack Server in This Scenario

I have a development site that I'm using to test a few things. I want to give a developer access to this WP multisite install. Is it possible for this person to hack the other sites / cPanel accounts on my server? Each has its own cPanel account with separate databases. This WP multisite has Genesis, which allows the insertion of scripts.

    Hey Chris,

    How are you doing today?

    Yes if you provide super admin level access to your multisite somebody would be able to access your other sites given that they are on the same server. They would simply be able to upload plugins that would contain malicious code potentially giving them access to your server.

    I wouldn't really call that a hack perse as you'd be letting them in, but yes to answer your question they could, given that they know what they are doing, get access other sites on your server.

    Best regars,

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.
