A mobile ad hoc network is much more assailable to attacks than a wired network due to its limited physical security, high mobility and lack of centralized administration. In this paper, the authors present and analyze the effects of two different kinds of attacks on TCP based mobile ad-hoc networks named as packet reordering attack and forced packet delaying attack. In the packet reordering attack the malicious node will reorder the packets in its FIFO buffer before forwarding them towards their destination.
