Doxxed? Trump’s Inner Circle May Be Under Cyber Attack

Doxxed? Trump’s Inner Circle May Be Under Cyber Attack, by Megan Fox.

Unknown hackers may have dropped private and sensitive information on several members of President Trump’s inner circle onto an open source forum called Hastebin. While the exact time stamp has been masked, the information contains personal phone numbers, email addresses, parking tickets, moving violations, the names of people related to them, and even Amazon Wish Lists. …

PJ Media reached out to the targets using the numbers from the document dropped on Hastebin. None of the numbers appear to be connected anymore. The email addresses also came back undeliverable, so it’s quite possible this list was a fake….

It’s a clear attempt at intimidation — and it happens all the time. More troubling than the phone numbers and email addresses were the names and addresses and phone numbers of all of their relatives. These are people who are not in the public eye and have no apparent political relevance.

Doxxing is a scourge in our modern life. Digital social justice warriors release private information as a form of payback for whatever misdeed they’ve attributed to the target. In this case, the “crimes” related to their support for the president. Normally, when private individuals are doxxed by online criminals it is to make them suffer social and economic consequences.
