Promotional ad

primatechpaper.com is the website of the Primatech Paper Company.

As part of Heroes Evolutions, a real-world version of the website can be "hacked" to uncover files that reveal further information on the covert activities of the organization behind Primatech Paper.

Lauren searches primatechpaper.com.

About

Godsend

The website address and the phone number (1-800-PRIMA16) appear on a business card that Mr. Bennet gives to Mohinder Suresh. He claims there is an access code on the back of the card.

The Art of Deception

When Claire comes to Noah Bennet's apartment, Lauren's computer has a browser that is opened to primatechpaper.com. Lauren uses the site to search the carnival employee database, which includes files on Lydia, Becky, and Damian. The website's address is http://www.primatechpaper.com//authorization.

1-800-PRIMA16 (1-800-7746216)

The following is a transcript of what the operator says when calling 1-800-PRIMA16:

To return to the main menu, press the star key.

Part 1: Job Application

To the unsuspecting public, the website appears to be a simple company profile of the Primatech Paper Co., with a simple Job Opportunities inquiry section.

Registration...

Texting APPLY to 46622 will send the user this text message in return:

Go to www.primatechpaper.com on your PC. Enter MT36. To get more messages like these reply Y.

Texting PAPER to 46622 will send the user this text message in return:

Would you like to hear more about Primatech Opportunities via text message? Reply YES now.

Replying Y or YES will result in the following text message:

You’ll be hearing from me again soon. We have a lot to do together.

To use the registration system:

  1. Call the phone number 1-800-PRIMA16 (1-800-774-6216).
  2. At the main menu, select option 3 (Personnel) and listen to the message. At this point, the user is given a passcode, MT36, and given the opportunity to enter a cell phone number to receive text messages.
  3. Visit the primatechpaper.com web site.
  4. Click the "Jobs" button (link).
  5. Enter the passcode.
  6. Fill out the contact information form.

An analysis of the page reveals that your answers to the 7 questions are evaluated to give you a code between 1 and 3. The algorithm used ranks every answer as either 1, 2, or 3, and then works out which one you answered most often. Thus it is a very basic form of personality test.

The answers are typed as follows:

Question Type 1 Type 2 Type 3
If you work at a store and see a woman steal a can of soup to feed her family, would you: Inform the store manager Pay for it yourself Ignore it
If you see a turtle lying upside-down on its shell in the middle of the road, you: Run over it Take it to safety Avoid it
How do you reach conclusions? Research Logic Emotion
How often do you put yourself above others? Only if it benefits me Always Never
Are you fueled by: Money Passion Routine
At a party, you are: An eavesdropper A gracious host The center of attention
In stressful situations, you react by: Emulating proven leaders Taking charge Avoiding it

Any type value can be obtained by simply selecting 4 or more answers in that type's column. It seems that "Type 1" would be most like Mr. Bennet's personality. "Type 2" represents a determined (but just) personality like Mohinder Suresh. "Type 3" represents a non-confrontational conformist personality.

Filling out the form will initiate an email like the following:

From: Primatech Paper <no-reply@primatechpaper.com>
Subject: Important Message from Primatech Paper

Thank you for your interest in Primatech Paper. We will be in contact once we evaluate your application.

... The Response

Subject: Important Message from Primatech Paper

From: Primatech Paper <no-reply@primatechpaper.com>

The user then receives one of three types of responses, depending on the personality tests results:

Type 1:

Part 2: The Hacker

Hana Gitelman Makes Contact...

Once the applicant received email confirmation for the application, the applicant received a text message saying:

Hav u applied @ www.primatechpaper.com? Pswrd is MT36. Do this so we can strt wrking 2gether to bring 'em all down.

On January 29, 2007, after the airing of The Fix, those who applied to the website received the following email:

From: Primatech Paper <no-reply@primatechpaper.com>
Subject: more than paper... much more

Want to try to get into his files too? Go to primatechpaper.com,
find the helix hidden in the logo on the 'About us' page.

Alternative 1: Users browsing on an Internet enabled cellular phone:

  1. Go to the "About Us" page of the Primatech Paper WAP site.
  2. Click on the small Primatech Logo and it redirects to this info page. The current message says:

Now that we know these guys weren't giving us our abilities, lets continue seeking answers here: www.activatingevolution.org.

Previous messages found by submitting user's name and phone number on the mobile "Careers" page:

Hana later made contact via text message with information on Sylar's password:

Did u get in to Sylar's file 2? I left u cluz how. If not, here's the pswrd: GGeh81zu. Not always going to b this ez.

The clues Hana is talking about are the differently colored letters on her Assignment Tracker page that, when put together, form GGeh81zu, Sylar's password.

On February 5, 2007, Hana once again contacted registered users with an additional password for Theodore Sprague's folder:

Via Text Message:

Get to know Ted, too: Go to http://www.primatechpaper.com and find the helix. Same place as before. Username: bennet / password: claire. Ted's code: TSntz14b. Remember: Username is always bennet.

On February 12, 2007, Hana once again contacted registered users with another additional password for Matt Parkman's folder:

Via Text Message:

On February 12, 2007, Hana also sent the following message containing Mr. Bennet's access code (42307#) to be entered when calling 1-800-PRIMA16 (1-800-774-6216):

Via Text Message:

Got Bennet's access code! Call 1-800-PRIMA16. Entr: 42307#. Tell em u r on 2 him. Just dn't say wht we're up 2. VMs may b mde public @ samantha48616e61.com

... Hacking Mr. Bennet's Tasks

After receiving Hana's message and returning to the site, a variation of the Symbol now appears superimposed on the Primatech Paper Co. logo.

Navigate to the PrimatechPaper.com About page and mouse over the Primatech logo (it will have the symbol mixed into the image). Clicking the logo brings up a prompt. Enter "bennet" as the user and "claire" as the password as directed and you are taken to an assignment tracker page with 4 available folder choices:

Folder Username Password Sex Enhanced Human
C001 bennet HGghx11a Female Hana Gitelman
C002 bennet MPggtn75x Male Matt Parkman
C003 bennet TSntz14b Male Theodore Sprague
C004 bennet GGeh81zu Male Gabriel Gray
  • The passwords start with the initials of the person about whom the profile in the folder is provided (as in, "HG" for Hana, "TS" for Theodore, and "GG" for Gabriel).
  • If the user accesses the folder and fails to enter the correct password, an access violation message is generated indicating the user's IP address is logged. The IP address displayed on that page is not always the player's, but can be either an intermediary server (like a proxy or TOR), one of the player's ISP's Master Domains (if their ISP only uses a few domains and all of its users are on network domains), or one of the range of domains that belongs to the player's ISP that they used for networking efficiency.
  • The characters in Mr. Bennet's files all have one element in common — they are known to have been marked by the Company
  • On January 29, 2007, during the airing of The Fix while Claire and Zach are on Mr. Bennet's computer, Hana hacked into the viewers' computers on Heroes Interactive with the following message:

Want to try to get into his files too? Go to primatechpaper.com, find the helix hidden in the logo on the 'About us' page. Enter the user name bennet and password CLSx172. The password to get into my file is HGghx11a. Get 2 know me.

  • The password CLSx172 does not give the user access to the Assignment Tracker, and it is believed that the password CLSx172 was changed to claire.
  • On February 5, 2007, Hana released the password for Theodore Sprague.

... Folder Contents

The first folder consists of a dossier for Hana, including several photos, Hana's Mossad psychological profile, and a medical diagram.

The second folder contains a dossier for Matt Parkman. Included are several photos and a medical chart. In the Research Documents tab on Matt's dossier is a file labeled "Scientific Studies", but it is marked as locked and is currently not clickable. The term "Broadman 41" on his medical chart refers to Brodmann's area 41 (aka Heschl's gyrus) of the brain - part of the primary auditory cortex. Interestingly, in addition to potentially being linked to telepathy, it also plays a part in auditory hallucinations in schizophrenics.

The third folder contains a dossier for Ted Sprague. Ted's dossier also includes a locked, unaccessible "Scientific Studies" file in the Research Documents tab.

In the fourth folder is a dossier for Sylar including a medical chart with GGeh81zu in the corner. This code can also be found on Hana's profile by combining all the blue letters in her text.

Part 3: Surveillance

On December 3, 2007, Hana alerted readers of her blog to view the surveillance cameras at primatechpaper.com. Five video feeds were available. RSL Zone 3 Corridor 26, RSL Zone 3 Corridor 27, and RSL Zone 3 Corridor 28 each showed empty hallways and lab rooms. RSL Zone 3 Corridor 29 and RSL Zone 3 Corridor 30 both showed static.

On December 4, 2007, RSL Zone 3 Corridor 26 showed Sylar holding Mohinder at gunpoint, threatening him to research Sylar's blood. (Note: When viewed in detail, Corridor 26 changes to Corridor 28.)

On December 11, 2007, RSL Zone 3 Corridor 26 showed Mohinder looking into a microscope as Sylar checks his surroundings. As well, Corridor 27 shows an empty hallway outside the Reed Street Laboratories. (Note: When viewed in detail, Corridors 26 and 27 both change to Corridor 28.)

Fantastic Four

Around the release of Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer the ads on NBC.com were changed to mention an employee screening, and a link to a preview video was added on the about page.

Information Concerning Noah Bennet

After the departure of Noah Bennet the site was updated with information concerning Noah Bennet.

We regret to inform that Noah Bennet is no longer an employee of Primatech Paper. All clients of Mr. Bennet will be contacted by a new Primatech Paper headquarters agent soon so that we may continue serving you with the same dedication and attention to detail provided by Mr. Bennet during his many years of service. As a valued customer, we look forward to a new beginning. Thank you for your cooperation and continued patronage.

On May 13, 2008, evsdropr sent a text message and email with news that during Noah's detainment, his voicemails would be forwarded to Thompson, Jr. instead. Calling 1-800-PRIMA16 and dialing 42307# will send caller's to Mr. Bennet's voicemail. However, when a message is left, the operator explains that it will be forwarded to Mr. Thompson.

Richard Drucker's file

A hidden link was found by players after Corinthianlasvegas.com was updated with Linderman's user-name and password.

Linderman

RDghxiia

Source Code

On March 10, 2008 a message was sent referring to Primatech's Assignment Tracker: http://www.primatechpaper.com/about.php. Going to this page results in source code, when it appears and the page it is on differs depending on the browser used. In Internet Explorer the Assignment Tracker loads then switches to the source code for http://primatechpaper.com/AT_2.0/assignmentTracker.php, where all the passwords can be found. In Firefox the page immediately shows the source code of http://primatechpaper.com/about.php, an interesting thing found in this code is the line // echo("Login correct, welcome Joe"); . However, as of March 15, 2008, the source code no longer appears. The title for the Assignment Tracker Login is missing an "s" and the browser title of the Assignment Tracker page is missing the letter "n".

Notes

  • The Heroes 360 promotional site should not be confused with primatechpaper.org, a parody-laden Heroes fansite.
  • The "Careers" page on http://www.primatechpaper.com/wap gives users the option of signing up for updates. Doing so redirects to this page.
  • The official Heroes site on NBC has an ad for Primatech paper promoting the toll free number 1-800-Prima16.
  • A promotion displays the phrase "Management position now available".

Trivia

Business Card
  • The questions asked of job applicants are similar to questions asked of replicants in the Ridley Scott movie Blade Runner. The questions are used to distinguish real humans from the artificially engineered humans by overloading their emotional response.
  • The domain primatechpaper.com was registered on October 31st, 2006. The registrant is listed as "Heroes", with Heroes writer and script coordinator Oliver Grigsby listed as the administrative contact. The website is hosted on the same server as NBC.com. As of January 10, 2007, the registrant was changed to General Electric Company, Internet Registrations.
