Item #: SCP-173

Object class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: Item SCP-173 is to be kept in a locked container at all times. When personnel must enter SCP-173's container, no fewer than 3 may enter at any time and the door is to be relocked behind them. At all times, two persons must maintain direct eye contact with SCP-173 until all personnel have vacated and relocked the container.

Description: Moved to Site19 1993. Origin is as of yet unknown. It is constructed from concrete and rebar with traces of Krylon brand spray paint. SCP-173 is animate and extremely hostile. The object cannot move while within a direct line of sight. Line of sight must not be broken at any time with SCP-173. Personnel assigned to enter container are instructed to alert one another before blinking. Object is reported to attack by snapping the neck at the base of the skull, or by strangulation. In the event of an attack, personnel are to observe Class 4 hazardous object containment procedures.

Personnel report sounds of scraping stone originating from within the container when no one is present inside. This is considered normal, and any change in this behaviour should be reported to the acting HMCL supervisor on duty.

I can't be sure, thank God it was purged, but it looks like SCP-317 broke containment about half an hour ago. We've got teams moving in as I type this message. Their orders are to quarantine, sever all outgoing connections, until we can ascertain the extent of the outbreak. I don't have to remind you how serious something like this could be. We're getting reports that the infection manifested as corrupted text in affected areas, weird columns of characters that just attacked entire paragraphs. I'll keep you informed.

I don't like this. We're still getting isolated occurrences of "infectiontext". We have to stop this thing from spreading. I'm applying for O5-level permission to do whatever necessary to prevent this escape.

I don't get it, this is hardly creepypasta.

Situation under control. After breaking through over 9000 levels of base defenses, SCP-173 was stopped by an angel, codenamed Chuck Norris.

As a precaution I'm uploading SCP-317's condensed field report. Part 1 attached.

Item #: SCP-317
Object Class: Safe
Special Containment Procedures: Internet connection to Server 23 of our localized database is to be avoided. The server does contain important information required for the maintenance of field operations, and connection of the server to the internet must be limited to very short amounts of time while the data stream is monitored by a certified PN Computer Technician. No new data may be stored on the server.

Description: A PHP file was aberrantly created on Server 23 on 2 August 2008. This file mirrored many automatic scripts programmed by our software, but it was outside of system parameters. On 26 September 2008 the file, SCP-317, began to update its content. The origin of this content is unknown. No data trace has been successful in discovering the origin of this content. Soon after, more content began to be created. A recursive loop eventually found itself into the file. This led to any attempt to access the file slowly overloading the RAM of the computer, rendering it inoperable. The content reflects a conscious awareness. Before the size of the file led the recursive loop to crash many computers in our network, research indicated clear and cognizant opinion statements and even legitimately humorous English-language jokes contained within the file.
It is therefore our scientific conclusion that the file is in and of itself self-aware. Attempts to delete the file have resulted in the complete obliteration of the computers attempting to access the server. The silicone in the RAM cards melted. How has not been ascertained.

Part 2:

Addendum from Bijhan:
I believe this file was sent to my PDA on accident while I was on assignment with the Front Runners in Libya. I have not opened it. If there are two copies of this file, is it possible it's reproducing? What should I do? Requesting technical assistance.

Addendum from Dr. ??????:
PDA remotely destroyed. The possibility of this file reproducing itself is a grave threat to global security. Research is now underway on how to extricate it from the server.

Addendum from Dr. Fisher: Warnings must be placed in areas suspected to be infected with SCP-317 as soon as possible. The severity of SCP-317 memetic hazards are unknown.
