Apparently this was one of the top news stories on TVNZ news, but very little info about it, and there is nothing on Adobes own website. Apparently most peoples account usernames and passwords have been hacked on the adobe website. So if you use that username and password combination on other websites, you could be at risk. You can check if you are affected on the www.lastpass.com website.
The only news I can find about it was from Nov 2013, but if it had occurred that long ago, you would have thought they would have enforced a password change.

I heard about this from a family member, article that went with the 6pm item seems to be http://tvnz.co.nz/national-news/top-level-kiwis-hit-global-adobe-hack-6076397 basically it's an "Oh my, we looked at the list of people and look even GCSB people got hit"  also has other relevance to the Dirty Politics as people like Jason Ede are mentioned.

Basically if you took care of it last year, nothing to worry about it seems.
