Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Safe

Special Containment Procedures: [Paragraphs explaining the procedures]

Description: SCP-XXXX is a version 1 reCAPTCHA test found on the "Create an Account" page of ████████.com. The test consists of five distorted characters appearing as "AIX XO", with a text box below instructing users to enter the characters in order to move on to the next steps of the account creating process. A set of three icons listed vertically can be found beside the text box, presenting the ability to refresh the test, play audio for the visually impaired, and learn more information. Despite many reCAPTCHA tests allowing the user to refresh and change the required characters, SCP-XXXX has been observed to remain the same even when the full web page has been refreshed.

No unusual activity has been examined when SCP-XXXX is completed in the standard manner, even if the characters are inserted incorrectly. However, if the user selects the audio icon adjacent to the text box, they will hear what is described as a low-pitched, digitally distorted voice alongside a low hum read out the characters at a moderate pace. If the user completes SCP-XXXX correctly after hearing the audio, they will begin to perceive anomalous effects.

Subjects have reported to feeling intense vertigo and having difficulty thinking immediately following the submission of SCP-XXXX. Approximately 3 minutes after experiencing the manifestation of these effects, users will begin hearing the previously heard audio of SCP-XXXX repeating, becoming more rapid and deafening. Simultaneously, the subject's vision will become overlaid with with a rough, ever-moving texture resembling that of television static. Subjects have been observed to exhibit an immense amount of hysteria at this point, having their vision and hearing almost entirely altered. After approximately 5 minutes after the effects of SCP-XXXX become apparent, the subject will begin seeing the letters A, I, X, X, and O slowly materialize from the static in their vision. Any other cognitive effects after this stage are unknown, as all abilities to communicate with subjects are lost.
