A. Chamoli and C.M. Bhandari presented a secure direct communication based on ping-pong protocol[Quantum Inf. Process. 8, 347 (2009)]. M.Naseri analyzed its security and pointed out that in this protocol any dishonest party can obtain all the other one’s secret message with zero risk of being detected by using fake entangled particles (FEP attack) [M. Naseri, Quantum Inf. Process. online]. In this letter, we reexamine the protocol’s security and discover that except the FEP attack, using a special property of GHZ states, any one dishonest party can also take a special attack, i.e., double-CNOT(Controlled NOT) attack. Finally, a denial-of-service attack is also discussed.
