I just saw this performed on a D5 site. Bootstrap.inc was indeed altered, an additional system.php file was inserted in the modules folder, and the pernicious (drug) website files were inserted into the cgi folder *above* the webroot. The code was sniffing passwords. Several files contained nothing but hashes.

I mention this because if we see a pattern across many sites, this entire conversation should move to security reports offline.
