Abstract: In Mobile ad hoc network (MANET) various routing attacks for single-path routing have been proposed in previous work. These nodes communicate with each other by interchange of packets, which for those nodes not in wireless range goes hop by hop. Due to absence of a defined central authority, securing the routing process becomes a challenging task thereby leaving MANETs vulnerable to attacks, by that the deterioration in the performance characteristics as well as raises a serious question mark about the reliability of such networks. This last point is where the main problem for MANET security resides, the ad hoc networks can be reached very easily by users, but also by malicious attackers. If a malicious attacker reaches the network, the attacker can easily exploit or possibly even disable the mobile ad hoc network. In this paper we presents the overview of types of attacks and their solution to recognizes the effect of attacker and security schemes.
