    Debbie Crowell never ordered the iPhone, but thanks to a hacking group known as Lulzsec, she spent a good part of her Thursday morning trying to get US$712.00 in charges reversed after someone broke into her Amazon account and ordered it.
    "They even had me pay for one-day shipping," she said via e-mail Thursday afternoon.

    "They even had me pay for one-day shipping," she said via e-mail Thursday afternoon. Crowell is one of more than 62,000 people who must now change passwords and keep a close eye on their online accounts after Lulzsec posted their e-mail addresses and passwords to the Internet Thursday. It's the latest escalation in a messy hacking rampage by the anarchic group that's caused damage at Sony, the U.S. Public Broadcasting Service and even the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency.
