The image at the end of the file can be translated to this message:

My hands shake as I hold the document. "This is confirmed?"

He nods. "We got the report from PNEUMA staff yesterday. It's everyone."

"Even us?"

"Even us, Tejani. To think I'd find myself agreeing with that damn lizard…"

"What do we do?"

"You know what we have to do. We'll have to disseminate a cure, I think, among personnel before we get things underway. It'll try to stop us otherwise."

"God help us, One."

"Don't be like that, Tejani. That's IT talking."

As suggested by Brewsterion 1017Brewsterion 1017, in-article interactions, mentions of the psychosphere, and this hidden message, it is possible that the reason the Foundation goes rogue is because SCP-682, or perhaps its omnicidal desires, have actually been subtly present in all human minds this whole time. During the Foundation's mapping of the psychosphere, they discovered this and ended up unleashing it upon the world.

This proposition that the end of the world is because of 682's will is also supported by the fact that the author TanhonyTanhony's second requested SCP slot was SCP-5682.
