Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX is contained within laptop SCP-XXXX-a and is kept within a 50x50x38cm glass chamber that can disrupt signal. It must never access the internet at any time and any device that can access the internet-except for cameras which must have German software-must be kept out of the area SCP-XXXX-a is kept in to prevent escape and/or information leaks.

Description: SCP-XXXX is a computer virus originating from ██████, Russia and has spread to an unknown amount of computers. Most computers are unaffected since the only computers shown to have problems are those containing sensitive information such as [REDACTED] or launch codes. It does not show itself normally but is listed in the directory as Anti2v-986.exe and appears as Antivirus Software. One major difference with this virus in comparison to others is that the virus is written in various human languages rather than in code. This not only makes it able to bypass an estimated 90% of all firewalls, security measures and antiviruses and take most anything it wants but also makes it able to understand most human speech.

Computers that have SCP-XXXX may not appear to be affected because, as mentioned before, it only targets classified information. It is unknown what it does with this information but if Researchers are able to find out where it is kept then the Foundation would have access to almost any restricted document in the world.

Addendum:
Addendum-XXXX-01: As of 2/6/2018, a copy of SCP-XXXX has been downloaded into the laptop labeled SCP-XXXX-a and is now in containment to await testing. It entered a laptop set up with dummy files and was disconnected from the internet to prevent escape.

Addendum-XXXX-02: On 3/11/2018, a group of researchers who were investigating SCP-XXXX and the programs it can not breach when they discovered a certain pattern between them. Every program that had been made in Germany or had any section of it-password, piece of code, etc.-in German, could not be breached by SCP-XXXX. This lines up with Test XXXX-T1 and requires more research.

Addendum-XXXX-03: The Foundation has created SCP-XXXX-b which is an Antivirus program coded in German and meant to counter SCP-XXXX. A test between SCP-XXXX and SCP-XXXX-b is to be carried out on 05/11/18 and information will be updated at that time.

Test Logs: Recorded and transcribed by Dr. [REDACTED]

Log XXXX-T1
Researchers: Dr. A█████ & Dr. D████
Subject: SCP-XXXX {inside of SCP-XXXX-a}

Foreword: This test was to see if SCP-XXXX can understand human language when it is spoken and respond. The results of this test determine if the Foundation can use SCP-XXXX to recieve information or not.

(phone rings and is picked up by Dr. D████)
Dr. D: (on phone) Yes. Alright, we will. Thank you. (hangs up)

Dr. A: Was that [REDACTED] saying the camera is on?
Dr. D: Yes it was. We can now begin the test.
Dr. A: Alright. I'm going in.
[For Safety Reasons the Procedure to Enter SCP-XXXX's Cell is Off Limits]
Dr. A: All devices besides the camera are off, glass box is off… We should be clear.
(startup procedure)
Dr. D: Ok. Now that SCP-XXXX-a is powered on we can install the microphone.
Dr. A: I already did it.
Dr. D: Fair enough. Start reading the questions.
Dr. A: (reading from document) We are going to ask you a series of yes or no questions in various languages. If your answer is no then we want you to-
Dr. D: Wait, I have a different idea for the answers. Research supports evidence that it can open files, open programs, and type but otherwise the computer is normal. Give it different actions for yes and no.
Dr. A: (groan) Ok. (back to SCP-XXXX-a) To answer our questions we will open the notepad program and you will type on the program. (opens notepad program) Please type in English for more clarity. I will now read the questions.
all questions will be translated to English and spoken language will be indicated in {}

Q1: {English} Were you aware that you were being held in containment before we told you?
SCP-XXXX: Yes. ███ █ ███ ███ ████████ █████.
Dr. D: 'Noted that SCP-XXXX knows it is a part of something else.'
Q2: {Russian} Did you enter this computer because you thought it had classified information?
SCP-XXXX: Yes. ██ ███ ██ ██████████ ████ ██████ ██ █ █████ █ ███ ███████.
Q3: {Japanese} Are you giving the information you have obtained to anyone?
SCP-XXXX: No. █ ██ ███ ████ ██████ ██ ████ ██ ██ ███████.
Dr. D: 'Noted that SCP-XXXX functions by itself with nothing controlling it.'
Q4: {German} Are you afraid of what we could possibly do to you or your information?
SCP-XXXX: I could not understand that. Could you speak more clearly?
Q4 Repeated: {German} Are you afraid of what we could possibly do to you?
SCP-XXXX: I still did not understand that. How is that possible? Why is this happening?! It is just like those programs!! The programs I could not read!! What is this?! WHAT LANGUAGE ARE YOU SPEAKING?!?!
Dr. D: Shut it down! Abort the test!
SCP-XXXX: Wait. Stop. I need to calculate something. There is no need to shut it down.
Dr. A: I am on standby for emergency shutdown.
SCP-XXXX: If my information is correct then that language is German but if that is the case then why can I not read it? Oh well. If that was your last question, say it in another language and the test will be done.
(Q4 is repeated in Spanish)
SCP-XXXX: See, I can understand that. Yes, very afraid.
Dr. D: The test is complete.

Closing Statement: SCP-XXXX can understand human languages and respond to them as some suspected though from SCP-XXXX's responses we discovered that it cannot understand German.
Note For Later Date: Redo all electronic systems in German software for maximum security against SCP-XXXX.
