Any idea what would cause this kind of damage??

We toured this "fixer." Has the proverbial good bones, but the floors had damp spots all over. Its an estate sale and the owners claim that a leaky pipe caused this and has been fixed but our agent was skeptical (as were we.) The spots were dark and mushy/damp. There was nothing on the ceilings-- it seemed to be coming from UNDER the floor in every room except the kitchen that had a new floor laid over the old. You can see it best in the hallway...its worse in person but the photos were shot in such a way to minimize it in most rooms.

We are not new to buying houses or doing remodels, but this seems very strange and concerning. Any idea what the problem might be?
