    If it's persistent, you may have something intercepting your network traffic, or has elevated access.

    Before even worrying about the answers below, check:
    1) Extensions: Safari extensions and add-ons, disable anything you don't recognise (in fact, disable everything you can for now)
    2) DNS: name resolution server for your machine AND your network/router
    3) Certificate store: trusted root or CA certificates for any 'trusted CAs' that weren't installed by macOS/Safari
    4) Safe mode: boot your mac into safe mode, run an offline malwarebytes scan

    A few questions:
    - What version of macOS are you running?
    - Have you installed the latest macOS and application updates/patches?
    - When did you first start getting AV notifications?
    - Did you download, install or change anything around the same time?
    - Have you noticed SSL/TLS certificate (https) errors lately?
