Brief Description 

    

Tooncom is an spyware that modifies the HOSTS file. By doing this, it redirects several web pages, so that they point to the IP address 66.40.16.131. Therefore, these web pages will not be accessible, and the user will be redirected to the pornographic site hosted in the IP address mentioned above.

Visible Symptoms 

    

Tooncom is difficult to recognize, as it does not show any messages or warnings that may indicate that it has reached the computer.
