Site Infected!

So I just moved from one GoDaddy host to another GoDaddy host, as they told me the server I was on, was out of date and could not be updated beyond PHP 5.4 (and probably other OS components…).  Any who, during this move, my buddy messages me saying my site has been hacked, but it looks fine when I go to the site directly. 

Long story short, some how some one got in and modified my .htaccess file in the root dir.  It checked to see if people came to the site from a search engine.  if so, it changed a lot of text to say things like "Viagra".  

Edited the .htaccess and all is good, but pretty sneaky stuff, as most website scanners did not even pick up the hack.
