Guo et al. propose to augment black-box adversarial attacks with low-frequency noise to obtain low-frequency adversarial examples as shown in Figure 1. To this end, the boundary attack as well as the NES attack are modified to sample from a low-frequency Gaussian distribution instead from Gaussian noise directly. This is achieved through an inverse discrete cosine transform as detailed in the paper.
