Where do you see that?
The articles say that they accessed a database with logins, names, addresses, phone numbers, birthdays, and encrypted passwords.

I just spoke to eBay rep which confirmed the security breach. She said they expect to make an announcement within the next few hours. Also, you will be prompted to change password when logging into eBay.

They know it's you from your IP.
See if you can log in from a different computer.  Or even try incognito.
