What does Doxing mean?

Doxing (or sometimes doxxing) comes from the word documents and is a relatively new word. It is an internetbased practise of indentifying personal information and broadcasting it. This is done by searching publicly available information and databases and doing some social engineering. In some cases the information that was gathered might have been gathered in an unethical or unjust manner. It is used to aid law enforcement, risk analysis or publicly shaming a person or organisation.
