    The articles in my client's website are now full of links which he did not insert. The links are pointing to websites which are totally not related to him.

    Is it a result of a program of a BH 'attack'?

    It's called hacking

    You have "clients" and never heard of hacking before?

    Don't confuse blackhat techniques with malicious attacks. Blackhatters are not hackers. Well some of them might be, but not all hackers are malicious either. Blackhat is about gaming the system. It's all about marketing, blackhatters just try to find loopholes in the system that can create larger or easier financial gain.

    Viruses, malicious code, and other exploits are beyond what most blackhatters consider acceptable. Blackhatters need the system to work in order to make money, and so overall they hate malware, hijacks, and other malicious exploits that disrupt the internet as much as you do.

    actually that depends.
    The op should be more clear about where the links are at.

    If they are inside the articles,within the article then yea nufaman is right. If they are as comments then is spam. Specify yourself better OP.

    You didn't give many details, but it could be that site is vulnerable to SQL injection.

    If you have query string variables like this at the end of your urls:
    Code:
    whatever.php?id=5
    Make sure you sanitize those inputs before concatenating into an SQL statement. (In fact, you shouldn't concatenate at all, but use parameters)

    Perhaps it is just an unmoderated blog full of spam comments
