Doxbin is a website made for the purpose of uploading personal information from other people online.

Originally a clone of pastebin, Doxbin made its name by allowing personal information to be posted, without fear of takedown. It has been implicated in cases of Identity theft, and was reportedly under the investigation of the FBI.

It further gained notoriety for its extremely tolerant policies on user submissions, Dox are never removed from the site unless they are proven to be false. This notice is accompanied by a threat that any request for takedown will result in the dox being promoted. Of course like every problem with doxing, this makes it piss easy for even the most unskilled cyberterrorist to cause severe real-life harm by impersonating the victim and making a huge fuss.

Doxbin bit the dust[edit]

The original Doxbin on the TOR network was taken down,[1] so a new one located in a .org domain was created and is currently running unobstructed.
