The Dangers of Journalism Include Getting Doxxed. Here's What You Can Do About It.
from The Poynter Institute
Threatening journalists over their reporting is not a new concept, but the age of electronic media has brought a new method of intimidation and harassment known as doxxing. Doxxing – named for docs or documents and also called doxing or d0xing – starts with publishing someone's personal information in an environment that implies or encourages intimidation. Typically done online, the information then is used by others in a campaign of harassment, threats and pranks.
