Possible virus/malware issue

Dear all,

My first post is of a concern I have with my Lumia 930.

Just recently, whenever I use the standard issue MSN news app, it keeps forwarding me to suspect sites automatically. I can be reading the latest headline, a wall of text, then suddenly, without me tapping on anything, it will load an advert that takes me to, some very dodgy websites, some with adult content - which leads me to believe its not associated with the news app. Each 'site' involves a 'click to enter' scheme, which I will not click on.

Can anyone shed any light on this? I have tried re-installing the app, as it only happens on news, and removed recently installed apps, but it still happens.
