I’ve learnt the word ”doxxing”, which is defined on Wikipedia as  the act of publicly providing personally identifiable information about an individual or organization, usually via the internet.  The usage of the term, originally from documentation, has broadened at Columbia University in New York where students  who had signed a statement that said, in part, “The weight of responsibility for the war and casualties undeniably lies with the Israeli extremist government.”, had their names and photographs displayed on the side of a truck driven near campus with a message “Columbia’s Leading Antisemites.”

Students protested against this doxxing by walking out of a lecture by Hillary Clinton, who is now lecturing at Columbia.
