BG files being detected as virus by other AV. False positive?

Hi everyone,

I run BG with Malwarebytes Premium as well as Norton (yes, I know, spare me the lecture, I didn't pay for it and it's almost expired). For some reason today, Norton flagged and removed some file from 

C:\Users\[NAME]\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data\Default\IndexedDB\chrome-extension_ihcjicgdanjaechkgeegckofjjedodee_0.indexeddb.blob\2\00

A bit of digging suggests that the extension is BG. Apparently is detected the file as "Linux.Mirai" Am I right in assuming this is a false positive or has the extension been compromised somehow? I uninstalled and resinstalled the extension and it still got flagged. I'll uninstall it again, just to be on the safe side in case it really is a virus. 

Thanks for any help.
