We also need a little more than a simple adjective
("sophisticated") describing the software.  There is a big
difference between discovering a single 386 PC with a copy of
Corel Draw, or instead discovering 8 Silicon Graphics Onyx
reality engines with Amazon rendering software.  Please be
specific.  (I understand that Graham is simply reiterating this
rumor, and he may not have the information himself).  If they
have an SGI in the building, I would be very suspicious.  If they
have a Power Mac and Avid Video Shop, I would be considerably
less suspicious, as it would be herculean effort to hoax such a
quality product with such limited tools.  But if Corel Draw was
indeed the discovered "sophisticated graphics software", then I
ask you to revisit the dictionary and ponder the meaning of the
word "sophisticated".

What computers were discovered (in number, make, model, cpu)?
And precisely what software was used (company, name of product)?
If this information cannot be specified, then the concerns about
software hoax are weakened to the point of being baseless rumor.
We cannot even begin to talk about what is possible with this
discovered software until we have a precise description of it.
