Headline Vulnerabilities found in two of Volkswagen and Ford’s best-selling models
Year 2020
Month March
Country United Kingdom

The study is initiated by ‘Which?’, a consumer association with more than 60 years of experience in the United Kingdom. It was carried out in collaboration with the cybersecurity company Context Security Information and some of the European associations in the same field. Which?’ acquired “two of the UK’s best-selling vehicles”: the Ford Focus and the Volkswagen Polo, both in their current generations. According to the publication, these were two “extremely well-equipped models that came with the latest infotainment devices, along with mobile apps that could be used to remotely control various aspects of the vehicle”. The cars were loaned to ‘Context’ for testing to see how vulnerable the vehicles were. Other systems they analyzed were the car’s access and start system, the CAN bus network… and in the case of the Polo, the front proximity sensor, and in the Focus the TMPS or tire pressure control.
