Hello @fkiybfgidozsn


  1. Read before you create a new topic!, tutorial by @Danila T. → provide device OS & build & KIS version & patch please? 
  2. KIS does not manage mail accessed via a web browser. 
  3. The header is incomplete, is that the full source code → if “no” copy the entire source code to a text document (.txt) & attach to your reply please? 
  4. Post a full screen image of the email showing the “hidden button”? 
  5. Shutdown all applications, excluding KIS.
  6. Run a Full scan → allow it to complete & do not use any other apps while the scan is running. 

Please post back? 

Thank you:pray_tone3:

Additionally to @Flood and Flood's wife  after running a full scan  please mark the sender as “spammer”, trash the suspicious message , empty your trash- & spam folder,  and proceed with another scan.
