We have found and resolved the issue on the Focus MK2 Ghost installation. The fix requires an upgrade which your installer will be able to do for you.
During the investigation, we also found that some variants of the Fiesta MK7's and earlier Focus MK3's installations could have a related security problem. Here are the details for each vehicle.
1) Ford Focus MK2 - Installation upgrade required.
2) Ford Focus MK3 - Contact your installer to find out if you need the software update. Almost all vehicles installed after March 2017 do not need the update (Install dependent).
3) Ford Fiesta MK7 (2008-2017) - Contact your installer to find out if your vehicles needs the installation upgrade. Your security is our priority, so please share this with anyone who could be affected. Contact your installer for details on the upgrade.
Once again, thank you all for being understanding whilst we worked on the upgrades.
