In this paper, two types of denial of service attacks over mobile ad hoc networks are implemented and their impact is analyzed on data communication process when using a reactive routing protocol for data communication. The reactive routing protocol well known Ad-hoc On-demand Distance Vector (AODV) routing protocol. In the Implemented attacks, a malicious node i.e., attacker will drop data packets that it receives for forwarding towards the destination of the packet. The attacker can do the attack by either making itself one of the intermediate nodes on the active route.
