April 14, 2020—A study conducted by Which?, a U.K.-based company that reviews and tests products for consumers, and Context Information Security found that the Ford Focus Titanium is allegedly vulnerable to cyber attacks, reported Ford Authority

The team leveraged basic equipment to intercept messages sent by the tire pressure monitoring system on the car. Attackers could trick the system into displaying that a flat tire was fully inflated.

According to the report, they were able to get information from the Ford code, such as Wi-Fi details and a password that appeared to be for a computer system on the Ford production line. 

Which? said the investigation confirmed there is "no meaningful on-board technology in the automotive industry."
