I'm pretty sure it's false positive.

Avast is getting updated every day with new definitions and it looks like some of the latest updates reads those files as dangerous while they're not. That's called false positive.

I'm not sure. Apparently your program creates some randomly named dll files in temporary folder and those may look suspicious for any AV program.

I'd suggest ignoring those warnings and hopefully some next Avast updates will fix the issue.
