Don't like the idea of excluding BOINC directories as suggested in other posts - this could even be why Rosatta is being targeted?

Unusual. I use both Norton Security and Malwarebytes and neither have flagged the new Mini Rosetta application, except for high CPU usage
Edit: Correction, my high CPU usage is coming up for the x86_64.exe file rather than the intelx86.exe file you're reporting, which matches what your tasks are reporting. I don't know why some tasks call one and not the other, but I get that too (still no errors for me though)

If it makes you feel better, submit the files to Virustotal for checks against multiple virus engines.
A lot of the false positives are related to the way Boinc creates files, deletes files and uses resources. If you don't want to exclude the directories, just accept that you may get these false positives
