Description

WP version: 2.2

All comment functions are closed, and comment forms removed from all pages. In spite of that, somebody (a hacker) has managed to upload comments several times. They are not shown anywhere but in /wp-admin/edit-comments.php. However, as the moderation function is on, an e-mail is sent to the administrator every time.

I didn't manage to find any other ticket on this.

Are you sure it's a comment and not a trackback or pingback?
