It is indeed spam and is not a legitimate Apple notification. They are wanting you to download their 'free' malware program so that they can install malware and then get you to pay them to remove it. It is usually caused when an advertiser's website gets compromised and they install a script that causes a pop up window in Safari to try and scare you into action. For all I know, the malware may have benzworld compromised.

All of Apple’s suggestions are in place. I did clear the history and data from Safari and so far it has not come back. I will see in a couple of days and let you know. Thanks!
