Doesn't look like an Avast popup.

From what I see, it looks more like scare ware.

Ok. I didnĀ“t look so close, I just saw utility and OS X...

But I am sure it is not a avast product/software ;)

First off (in the image) this isn't an Avast message as far as I can tell (certainly not Avast for Windows), but a detection on an entry in the avast download/defs, references to avast download and vps9 locations, etc.  Also these aren't Avast for Windows locations.

The fact that it is also 'validly signed by Apple' in the image also, I would have to ask is this Avast for Mac installation if so it should be in the Avast Mac Security (https://forum.avast.com/index.php?board=5.0) sub-forum.
