Recent work [12] shows that conventional privacy preserving publishing techniques based on anonymity-groups are susceptible to corruption attacks. In a corruption attack, if the sensitive information of any anonymity-group member is uncovered, then the remaining group members are at risk. In this study, we abandon anonymity-groups and hide sensitive information through perturbation on the sensitive attribute. With each record being perturbed independently, corruption attacks cannot be
