The broadcast nature and restricted usage of resources, made it difficult to provide security to wireless sensor networks. In recent times reactive jamming attacks became a big threat to the wireless sensor networks. These attacks can produce a great damage to the legitimate communications. The reactive jammer attack is a light weight attack which is easy to launch but difficult to detect. This paper suggests a new scheme to neutralize malicious reactive jammer nodes by changing the characteristic of trigger nodes to act as only receiver.
