Ad-hoc wireless networks are increasing in popularity, due to the spread of laptops, sensor devices, PDAs and other mobile electronic devices. These devices will eventually communicate with each other and hence there is a need of security in MANETS. This paper describes the different types of attacks that are very common i.e. the Distributed Denial of Service attack, the black hole attack and the wormhole attack, also provide the mechanism to detect these attacks using the different techniques and the relative comparison between these three attacks.
