Removal step 1: restart in Safe Mode
During the initial analysis of xmrig_atom.exe, it has been discovered that it is mostly targeted at businesses located in Japan. The parasite also takes screenshots of player activity. This can be background changes, misleading alerts and pop-up advertisements, browser redirections and other things that may lead computer to damage. For that, xmrig_atom.exe changes Internet settings (victims are normally disconnected from it), contacts its remote servers and downloads/installs malicious files to the Local Disk. Beware that it can also try to infect your system with other cyber threats without your knowledge and disable your legitimate security software. At least, we have not found any free tool on the web that could restore your files after this attack.
