We provide an adversarial risk analysis framework for batch acceptance problems in which a decision maker relies exclusively on the size of the batch to accept or reject its admission to a system, albeit being aware of the presence of an opponent. The adversary acts as a data-fiddler attacker perturbing the observations perceived by the decision maker through injecting faulty items and/or modifying the existing items to faulty ones. We develop optimal policies against this combined attack strategy and illustrate the methodology with a review spam example.
