Dox'ing

Social engineering is the art of manipulating people into performing actions or divulging confidential information. While similar to a confidence trick or simple fraud, the term typically applies to trickery for information gathering or computer system access and in most cases the attacker never comes face-to-face with the victim.

Yes now that i have your attention i would like to thank the all and wonderfull limdis for making that post back in 2013. Now i havn't cared much for doxing until i read his post, go check it out and read everything he has some good information and for all the people asking "were do i start for hacking" head to his post, it's not hacking like breaking into something (unless i guess you get good informaion) but hey it's awsome.

Now you can legally gather information about somebody but the line crosses when you publish it out in the world wide web for all too see. And no it's not for hurting somebody, it can be used for employers too look up more on the guy/girl who made a good impression while handing in that resume or interview. If you're a parent it can i guess help you moniter your kids online activity or even look up that baby sitter you hired for your kid, which limdis himself i think mentioned.

Doxing though isn't the correct term unless you're meaning to post that information out there for all to see, that's ilegal. The correct term for just gathering information is just that, which i described up above in the first paragraph. There's websites for this stuff but i recomend you to just use google and learn to do information gathering with that, it's a good way to get started or just as another hobby to go along with programming.

I give credit to limdis for making me aware of Dox'ing/information gathering, although i have heard of it before well he kind of initiated me into learning of it and what you can actually do. His thread is a few below mine in the social engineering bit, give it a check out as it's really informationa and research the web too.

Well, yeah, I guess we still need some votes on it. (see what I did there?)
To make his name stand out, you could've also just linked the article on the name, making it URL-blue.

I hope I'm getting better at this stuff.
*Hopes he's getting better at this stuff. *

Right, a different color would've been better in the first place :)

I can't remember having this much off-topic talk in a thread. And for those interested this is the article by limdis.

Perhaps I can try Doxing on http://www.time4learning.com

And thank you for providing that link. I think it will prove quite useful.

Oh look at this! Well thanks for the shout out. Btw I know this whole color thing is up for discussion but just for the record if you see any changes *that look like this with the 00FF40 color code, that is me doing my mod things.* But really, I once hosted a doxing challenge. If anyone has any questions about the topic/techniques feel free to PM me.
