Top Page in GA reports is a spam - how do i block it?

Hi experts,

 

We have multiple websites in Google Analytic and I'm seeing the same problem with all. When i look at the report for top pages (behavior - site content - all pages) in the top i see a page that is not part of the website and should not be there - looks like spam to me: inst.webinstantservice.com/. It shows high sessions and high bounce rate. How can i block this or remove it?

If i add the "source/medium" dimension to the report, it shows me this: rank-checker.online / referral

 

Thank you.
