This letter describes a permutation attack (PA) to the subsampling-based watermarking scheme where the high correlations between subimages obtained by subsampling the original image are used for watermark embedding. We show that the correlations can also be easily used to attack the watermarking scheme through a simple permutation procedure, while the quality degradation of attacked watermarked image is visually acceptable. Experimental results show the efficiency of the proposed attack algorithm.
