Thanks to everyone who offered suggestions. My webhost confirmed that it 
was a 'brute force' attack that got the password. They said that they 
have software in place to detect that with the main logins, but are in 
the process of installing it for FTP.

They didn't answer my question about SFTP so I'll ask again. Checking 
the logs I found that I was lucky enough to stumble onto the intrusion 
just a few hours after it happened - so at least that worked out.

Meanwhile - I'm learning more about .htaccess commands...
