Q: A person wronged me, so, I talked to another person about his behaviorů Is this considered backbiting, knowing that this person knows the one whom I talked about? 

A: Backbiting is to mention an unknown blemish of your brother. What you have said might be backbiting because gossip is allowed only when the other person is an oppressor. Anyhow, it is better to avoid committing backbiting in all circumstances.
