    BE FOREWARNED!!!
    My client went to visit his website and discovered this popup text on the home page:

    <!-- This website uses Linkable Title Html And Php Widget v1.2.4 WordPress plugin developed by PepLamb (PepLamb.com) -->online roulette|online blackjack

    I had previously done a search with Sucuri scanner... but there is absolutely no way of finding the spam.

    DO NOT INSTALL! THE AUTHOR HACKED THE SCRIPT!!!

    I've examined the code of this plugin and it did not add the spam link. Your site has been hacked and it has nothing to do with this plugin. You need to start working your way through these resources:

    http://ottopress.com/2009/hacked-wordpress-backdoors/

    Anything less will probably result in the hacker walking straight back into your site again.
