YOUR PASSWORD WASN'T STOLEN - YOU GAVE IT TO THEM!
I get these emails daily from 'ebay' - they're phishing emails too so looks like you gave them your details! AS stores your details in encrypted form - if they were losing passwords to hackers then there would be many, many more complaints. [Whenever I get an email from 'ebay' along those lines I send them to email@example.com - if they're legitimate then they'll let me know - so far NONE have been!]
