Avast flagging false positives? /private/var/db/dyld/dyld_shared_cache_x86_64h

So I recently ran an Avast deep scan and it came back flagging a file called ”

dyld_shared_cache_x86_64h”… threat name “MAC OS:MaxOfferDeal-BU [Adw]”… in the directory…

/private/var/db/dyld/dyld_shared_cache_x86_64h”… I contacted Avast but they don’t seem to really know what this is at the moment and are investigating it… I did a google search an apparently this same file seems to have been flagged in the past but under a different threat name “MacOS:Pirrit-BU [Adw]

Anyone else know if this is a false positive or something did infect my operating system? How should I resolve this?
