Hello Steve 

 

It's likely wordpress was hacked and in such a case Wordpress have the following information http://codex.wordpre...site_was_hacked

 

The first thing to do if you have been or suspect you have been hacked is to contact your host and ask them to investigate and remove any malicious code if they can. You could ask them to roll back your site to a backup before the site was hacked.

The client complained about a month ago that there was a gambling link at the bottom of the website... I could never find it and he couldn't find it again either.  However, just today I visited his website and saw this at the bottom:
