A bulletin warning agents about the release of the glyph game.
BULLETIN SHAPER GLYPHS RP:PORTED DISCOVERED IN INGRESS SCANNER DEVICE ALERT : IF YOU DISCOVER SHAPER GLYPHS IN YOUR DEVICE PLEASE NOTIFY US BELOW. We are attempting to confirm reports that code was discovered in the Ingress Scanner Device that, disguised as a tool to improve Portal Hacks, exposes Agents to a series of Shaper Glyphs. It is believed that this code may be the work of Dr. Oliver Lynton-Wolfe, perhaps developed during his time at Hulong Transglobal, but we are investigating other theories. Agents should be advised that exposure to Shaper Glyphs is dangerous. Shaper Glyphs are suspected as having contributed to the tragic fate of former Niantic Project investigator, Carrie Campbell, and may also be suspect in an incident involving the investigator, Klue. Although researchers have determined that Portal Hacking is improved through use of the Glyphs,cannot provide assistance to Agents who experience unwanted side effects from exposure to Shaper Glyphs, and advises all Agents to exercise extreme caution. If Shaper Glyphs appear on your scanner, please notify us . We are trying to ascertain the scope of this development .

I have heard disturbing but unconfirmed reports of a new glyph application in some Ingress Scanners. These must be verified. We need to establish the vector of this hack. While there is debate on this subject, my official warning is that you use glyphs carefully.
Oliver replied in that post with
Devra… Nervous as usual, aren't you? Reminds me our little tiff about the Power Cube. Seems like a hundred years ago.
Lightman also made a post about it
I am hearing increasingly credible reports that Shaper Glyphs are appearing on the Ingress Scanner. While many are viewing this with concern, I would recommend a cautious but optimistic attitude. We must investigate with an open mind. I would much appreciate any observations you have.
Do not rule out the possibility that there was a transdimensional intervention in the case of the new glyph application. I have seen things lately in the ether, or XM if you prefer, that I would not have expected. I am not saying that this is Carrie signalling from the grave, but I am not ruling it out.
Oliver made a post of his own
I have no comment on allegations that I am behind the addition of Shaper Glyphs to the Scanner.
More Enlightenment is coming.
