Security breaches continue to plague the automakers as Ford Brazil was recently attacked by a group of computer hackers who stole plans regarding a new car to be sold in that country. The hackers got photos, design details, production and market analysis data, though no one knows their motives or what they plan to do with the information they've boosted. The cost of the theft will be difficult to measure, though Ford knows the breach in security will probably cost it dearly. GM has also had to tackle difficult security issues as a photo shoot involving its next gen full-size sport utes was recently captured on camera phone and proliferated around the web.
