Commander X, hacktivist and part of the Anonymous network, became known for crippling credit card companies that suspended payments to Wikileaks.
Commander X (a.k.a. Christopher Doyon) spent time on the streets of Toronto and Mexico hiding from the FBI. But this infamous hacktivist feels most at home on the internet where he gained notoriety.

He takes credit for crippling credit card companies that were attempting to sideline Wikileaks and claims a role in the Arab Spring. But what role did he really play in the worldwide collective?
