I'm just this guy, you know?
Via The Atlantic Wire:
Doxing is the “elaborate and often speculative process” of revealing a hacker’s true identity.
As is often the case with this sort of thing, Urban Dictionary adds valuable context:
Dox, or being doxed, in terms of online forum sites, is the physical equivalent of being butt-raped irl. Just as all the greats have, when a person is “doxed”, all their personal information is made available for all users to see. Names, addresses, phone numbers and school/work are not spared, and this usually leads to the person ceasing all ties with said websites, if not the interwebs as a whole.**Nao Commencing Dox Dump**
I think I spend too much time in the wrong three corners of this chart. (via ilovecharts)
