Fichier (File en anglais) contenant des informations à ne pas mettre normalement entre toutes les mains, ce que s'empressent de faire les pirates de tout poil. La faute d'orthographe est intentionnelle, car ces fichiers proviennent en général de piratages téléphoniques (Phone). La faute devient ainsi une sorte de code de reconnaissance ésotérique. Elle en a donné d'autres: progz, warez.
