In response to the murder of Samuel Paty, the government wants to tackle "doxing

On 20 October, Prime Minister Jean Castex spoke of creating an "offence of endangering others by publishing personal data". This follows the circumstances of the murder of Samuel Paty, which was accompanied by a "doxing" of the teacher, a form of cyber-harassment consisting of revealing a person's personal data to the public for malicious purposes.
