Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Keter Presumed Neautralized

Special Containment Procedures: At the time of initial documentation, no known method of containing SCP-XXXX was devised. Agents were advised to commit as much information on GOI-001 activity to memory.

Description: SCP-XXXX was a phenomenon in which documentation of GOI-001 "The Chicago Spirit" was modified to obscure important or relevant information. The means through which SCP-XXXX did this is currently not fully understood.

SCP-XXXX occurred in and affected portions of documentation that could be considered or are narrative in structure, such as interview or incident logs, as well as historical accounts including discovery logs or POI profiles. Information modified by SCP-XXXX is only considered lost within the affected documentation; human memory is unaffected by SCP-XXXX.

Narrative alteration committed by SCP-XXXX is typically done in a style mimicking criminal action, i.e, the theft of evidence or the murder of a witness. In all cases, the narrative documentation will come to an end following the modification, with any previously existing information being lost.

SCP-XXXX is believed to have been created by the Chicago Spirit in an attempt to thwart FBI efforts to catch and detain members involved in anomalous crimes. SCP-XXXX was most active from the the late 1920's to 1930's, affecting FBI, UIU and Foundation documentation. SCP-XXXX was last recorded in 1938, days prior to the arrest of Chicago Spirit leader Richard Chappell.

Subject: Intrusion Attempt?

Got a bit of a strange one.

I woke up to a few messages alerting me that the virtual documentation for SCP-XXXX was edited overnight. This is strange in on itself because 1.) The file hasn't been touched since we uploaded it to the SCipNet database in the 70's, and 2.) I don't see any actual sign of modification. Everything looks exactly the way it was. I've even checked the file history: no reversions or changes.

So I'm a little stumped. I still think it's significant enough that I yanked the file and isolated it. I'll give the database a scrubbing soon. Can't be too sure now-a-days.

I can confirm we haven't had any active attempts on our servers recently. Things have been relatively quiet.

The higher-ups still want us to keep an eye on this. Seeing as though SCP-XXXX's documentation doesn't actually contain a "narrative", I'm not sure what the modification means.

Anyway, I've sent you a copy of some files. The first is the original SCP-XXXX documentation before it was assumed neutralized. The only major differences are the "was" being "is".

The second is the UIU casefile that directly led to the arrest of Richard Chappell. It was also the last documentation to be modified by SCP-XXXX.

You probably won't get anything from them, but who knows?
