The wireless ad hoc network become mundane, yet the core issue is the security. There are different types of attacks provided by different researcher but still faces research challenges. In ad hoc networks, nodes have limited resources like bandwidth, battery power and storage capacity. In this paper the authors pay attention to common attacks which occur in networks layer of OSI model such as black hole attack, gray hole attack, flooding attack, jamming, wormhole attack, collosion attack traffic monitoring and analysis & DOS. They discuss about the counter measures against them.
