I got an e-mail directly from Ebay this morning too, so this is definitely not a hoax.

Remember to change passwords on other sites as well (esp. Paypal) in case you were using the same one !

Took place late Feb, early Mar, and they just detected it two weeks ago. So the hackers had 2 months of unfettered access. I guess if something was going to happen, it would have already in those 2 months, but I changed the pswd anyways.
