Sun's nonrepudiation threshold proxy signature scheme is not secure against the collusion attack. In order to guard against the attack, Hwang et al. proposed another threshold proxy signature scheme. However, a new attack is proposed to work on both Hwang et al.'s and Sun's schemes. By executing this attack, one proxy signer and the original signer can forge any valid proxy signature. Therefore, both Hwang et al.'s scheme and Sun's scheme were insecure.
