Thank you for your question. The .htaccess file could have been modified by several different things, such as your Content Management System (CMS), or a modification in your cPanel.
I am not sure what you are asking about the filter, but if you are worried that something was modified, I recommend checking the file for anything that looks incorrect to you.
If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below, or contact live Tech Support.
