According to Matt Cutts blog the change is about derivative content and too many Adsense ads per page.
These two issues were at the heart of recent changes in Google’s ranking algorithm.

I would have to read the blog - but hubpages is a premium publishers with dedicated customer service and such - they would be immune from that particular issue
