Question about ecu issue

Ok found an Sti hatch for sale thinking about picking it up but one issue the dealer let me plug my tatrix cable in to look at the map. Ecuflash failed and couldn't read it crap does this mean the car may have been tuned with an accessports because ecuflash reads my 08 wrx perfectly. Anyways then I tried learning view to see the engine codes (nothing major just an O2 error ### of downpipe) anyways learning view read it but ecuflash could not read the map. So could the ecu be cobb flashed or no?

Thanks

Depends...it could be professional locked through opensource, cobb, ECUtek, or whatever was used to tune it last.
