hernesheir commented on the word water-holing
Interesting, if not zblbl, because water-cooler is African ungulate herd-slang for the water-hole, where hackers (slang for crocodiles) lie in wait to ambush the users.

I saw this in a BBC article http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-21371608 , water-holing is where hackers attack a company by planting malware in message boards that the company employees will be discussing technical information.derived from 'the water hole' which is slang for the water-cooler where people sometimes have water-cooler chats
