So, you might say I had this coming, but someone going by the name of “anon” recently dropped my dox on Doxbin, after I jokingly said “Don’t dox me, OK?” *facepalms himself*
Well, I guess you should never joke about that sort of thing! (Seems obvious now.) I had to laugh at seeing some of the old passwords I used to use on there. (Note – they have since been changed or deleted.) Kind of reminds me of that infamous bash.org post: http://bash.org/?244321
<Cthon98> hey, if you type in your pw, it will show as stars
<Cthon98> ********* see!
<AzureDiamond> doesnt look like stars to me
<Cthon98> <AzureDiamond> *******
<Cthon98> thats what I see
<AzureDiamond> oh, really?
<AzureDiamond> you can go hunter2 my hunter2-ing hunter2
<AzureDiamond> haha, does that look funny to you?
<Cthon98> lol, yes. See, when YOU type hunter2, it shows to us as *******
<AzureDiamond> thats neat, I didnt know IRC did that
<Cthon98> yep, no matter how many times you type hunter2, it will show to us as *******
<AzureDiamond> wait, how do you know my pw?
<Cthon98> er, I just copy pasted YOUR ******’s and it appears to YOU as hunter2 cause its your pw
<AzureDiamond> oh, ok.
I had made the passwords in question in the days prior to discovering things like diceware and/or having password managers like KeePass. And yes, I know that nothing is uncrackable, but some things take a little more effort than others.
Does this mean I should also retire my Twitter account and IRC username? Geez, I’ve been “crazypens30/31” or some variation on that since around the time that Twitter first started!
Now, this may sound ironic, but I have nothing against the admin of Doxbin; in fact, if he’s into the idea, I might like to interview him. I suppose that’s just the reporter in me. I’ve talked to all kinds of interesting people on Tor thus far, and I’m not going to stop now.
He had posed a challenge to me that if I could figure out the clearnet IP addresses of Doxbin and Deadnet, then he would remove the dox. I’m not sure if that’s possible unless a Tor hidden service isn’t configured correctly, however.
Anyhow, what’s done is done. OK, you win, Doxbin!
P.S. The interview offer is still on the table though.
