Honestly, if anyone thinks information was stolen during a DDoS attack, then they have no idea what DDoS does. It's designed to knock out the ability to connect or connect from the attacked location, not to steal information.

Additionally, due to the nature of how a DDoS attack is performed, little to no amount of security could have been setup to prevent the DDoS and, as such, it is not CCP's responsibility to compensate players for an incident that they couldn't realistically control, but seeing as they are doing this for their customers, I respect them that much more.
