It's been in the database for many years, so doubt that it's invalid, but could still be an FP in your specific case. The signature looks like this:

VIRUS NAME: Html.Trojan.Exploit-112
bc f3 e3 f2 e9 f0 f4
[I padded the hex string with spaces to prevent this e-mail from being detected].

ClamAV doesn't publish detailed information most of it's signatures. Only the original signature writer might have it in his notes and I doubt he still works for them. Each vendor uses it's own unique name for signatures, so it's no wonder you weren't able to find anything, although I did find this from Dec 2017 which appears to believe it might be a False Positive from a Time Machine backup: <https://forum.qnapclub.de/thread/45902-virenfund-timemachinebackup-wie-finde-ich-die-dateien-auf-dem-macbook/>.

You should upload that file to <https://www.virustotal.com> to help make your case.

Then it should be uploaded to <http://www.clamav.net/reports/fp> so that it get's to the ClamAV signature team for resolution.

You may get faster results if you post the link to VirusTotal results and a hash value for the file back here, to make it easier for all to help resolve it.
