Wireless ad hoc network is a network formed without any central infrastructure which consists of nodes that use a wireless interface to send packet data. Linkage error and malicious packet dropping are two sources for packet losses in wireless ad hoc network. A sequence of packet losses are present in the network, it determines whether the losses are caused by linkage errors only, or by the joint effect of linkage errors and malicious drop. In the interior-attack case, whereby malicious nodes that are part of the route utilize their knowledge of the communication framework to selectively drop a small amount of packets vital to the network performance.
