No need creds sex chat
Doxing is not new; the term dates back to 2001 and the hacker group Anonymous. In 2014, several women were doxed by male gamers trying to intimidate them into keeping silent about sexism in computer games. In 2011, Anonymous doxed the technology firm HBGary Federal.

• January 2, 2015 PM Doxing has been around since before 2001.
I was doxed in 1997 by a former member of a religious cult who thought I supported his cult's leader.
I am much quieter on the Internet than I used to be precisely because a group of anonymous hackers were gearing up to doxx me for the dumbest of reasons.
