Doxxing or doxing is a malicious act of publicly searching and revealing sensitive (and private) information about an individual, group of people, or an organization. Doxing although in itself is not illegal, if it’s targeted towards cyber-bullying, blackmailing, or identity theft, it can become a case of cybercrime.
Doxing in communities can include digging and publicly sharing personal information about other community members. It can include derogatory comments, publicly berating, and spamming information that is aimed at destroying someone’s image.
