Zillow sued over hacked listing of California mansion WASHINGTON – What may be the first-ever hijacking of an active real-estate listing online – a palatial mansion overlooking the Pacific Ocean in Bel Air, California – has led to a lawsuit seeking $60 million in damages against home-sale marketing company Zillow. One or more hackers seized control of the mansion’s listing page on Zillow’s popular Zestimates site in February, causing it to display a series of bogus sales that were tens of millions of dollars below the $150 million asking price, according to the complaint filed in federal district court in Los Angeles. The net effect was to inflict financial damage on the seller by “corrupt[ing] the listing price dramatically,” according to the complaint, making it more difficult to obtain anywhere near the price the seller is seeking. The newly constructed hilltop house is a knockout, even by Hollywood standards: 12 bedrooms, 21 baths, 38,000 square feet of interior space, 17,000 square feet of “entertainment decks,” three kitchens, five bars, fitness spa, four-lane bowling alley, basketball and tennis courts, wine cellars and an 85-foot “glasstile infinity pool,” to cite just some of the amenities. It is owned by a limited
mation on the site. They erroneously reported that the house sold for $110 million on Feb. 4, then for $90.5 million on Feb. 9 and $94.3 million Feb. R. HARNEY 10. They also listed an open house for the property on Feb. of their homes on the site. The feature 8, something that would be unusual in is heavily used by legitimate owners to the rarified world of super luxury homes, modify information where showings posted about their tend to be exclusivehouse – numbers of bedrooms and baths, ly by appointment.

The hijacking occurred when someone using a Chinese IP address and a made-up U.S. phone number managed to successfully claim “ownership” of the mansion on Zillow’s Zestimates page. Zillow, which displays pages on 110 million American homes – properties listed for sale and off the market – offers a feature that allows owners to amend descriptions
trolls, criminals” and others “to commit illegal acts” by “logging into their system to post the false information,” the suit alleges. Asked for comment, Kate Downen, a Zillow spokesperson, said that “while we don’t discuss pending litigation, I can tell you that [the company] goes to great lengths to display current and accurate data.” Downen added that Zillow is “in the process of updating” the verification system for access to owner pages on the Zestimate site. In an exhibit accompanying the complaint, attorneys for the owner included a copy of an email from Kim Nielsen, senior lead counsel for Zillow Group Inc., in which she
says, “Unfortunately if someone is able to provide responses to the verification questions, they are able to claim the home – we do not manually check each time someone attempts to claim a home.” The complaint also quotes Nielsen as saying that “any home on our website can be claimed by the homeowner. There are a series of questions – but if someone attempts to claim [the property] enough times, they will know the questions asked and be able to figure out what information they need to verify their identity.” Ronald Richards, the seller’s attorney, asked “How is it that someone with a fake phone number (bad area code) and Chinese IP address
and email can hijack [a] $150 million house?” In an interview, Richards said “it’s impossible to have a site” like the Zestimate owner-claim page if effectively there are “no security protections.” So what should homeowners whose house is listed on Zillow make of this suit? Even if your home is not a dazzling palazzo on a hill, the secret is out: Though it’s highly unlikely, your Zillow page can be hacked and stolen by online troublemakers. Until Zillow announces verification reforms, it’s probably worth checking your Zestimate page now and then. Ken Harney’s email address is Harneycolumn@ gmail.com.

Spring into spring with these 10 maintenance projects keep your spring checklist on track. 1. Check your roof. Your roof may have taken a beating following the weight of snow and ice.

Lots of parents want to help their grown children buy a house, but the down-payment help must be well-crafted to avoid scrutiny from the IRS.

phrase while visiting New Orleans, where stable hands there called New York “the big apple where all horsemen aspired to race.” The phrase soon caught on with other reporters, regardless of whether they were writing about sports, entertainment or politics. A song and even a dance routine using the term became extremely popular in the 1930s. But the nickname didn’t truly come into widespread use until the 1970s, as part of New York City’s extensive new tourism program. Many of the city’s
print and TV ad campaigns included red apples “meant to serve as a bright and cheery image of the city, in contrast to the common belief that New York City was riddled with crime and poverty,” according to travel site www. tripadvisor.com. The Big Apple’s tourism program, which continues today in various forms, obviously has been successful. A record 65.2 million visited the city last year, www. travelpulse.com reports, making it the most visited city in America and one of the top destinations in the world.

“The Big Apple” was coined for the nation’s most populous city because it was surrounded by apple orchards before the area began being developed in the 1800s. Others think it’s an offshoot of a brothel owner named Eve, who shared the name of the Biblical woman who defied God’s will by eating a forbidden apple in the Garden of Eden. More likely, though, the nickname was “officially” coined by a turf-racing reporter who began using it in his columns for the now-defunct New York Morning Telegraph in the 1920s. Back then, winning horses often were rewarded with a big bucket of apples. The authoritative word website www. dictionary.com says that the writer had first heard the

ries prefer a lighter soil that has been improved with generous amounts of organic matter, the fact that blackberries are considered vigorous weeds in many of our area pastures tell you they can tolerate poor soil. This is one of the reasons they are the berry of choice for many Payne County residents. As far as a physical location, plants should ideally be located in full sun on a slightly north facing slope to aid in frost protection and to help protect from drying southwest winds.
