Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: All Foundation database software is to be programmed to conceal evidence of SCP-XXXX from personnel without level 4 or higher clearance. An application has been designed to monitor changes in SCP-XXXX activity and report them to designated personnel with level 4 or higher clearance.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a phenomenon which manifests within the source code of the Foundation database. All attempts to expunge SCP-XXXX from the database have proven unsuccessful1. Alteration of SCP-XXXX has also proven impossible. However, it is possible to conceal SCP-XXXX to the point where it can only be detected by highly invasive hacking methods.

SCP-XXXX takes the form of a series of numerical values2, each embedded in the source code of certain files within the Foundation database. Notably, all SCP documentation files have an associated SCP-XXXX instance. There is a minor positive correlation between the values and the amount of time a given anomaly has been in containment, but other than that, no meaningful purpose to the numbers is evident.

The values of SCP-XXXX are known to fluctuate at various rates, ranging from several times per day to only one or two times annually. The fluctuations and their rates are assumed to be random.
