In this paper, we examine additive homomorphic encryptions in the discrete logarithm setting. Recently, Wang et al. proposed an additive homomorphic encryption scheme by modifying the ElGamal encryption scheme [Information Sciences 181(2011) 3308-3322]. We show that their scheme allows only limited number of additions among encrypted messages, which is different from what they claimed.
