Mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) are hastily developing as a new arena of research. Mobile ad hoc networks are intended for conveying information of every type among two or further points that are not actually associated. The MANET acts devoid of a centralized supervision where the nodes are in contact with each other on the backbone of mutual faith on each other. This quality makes MANET further defenseless to be broken via an attacker within the network. Mobile ad hoc networks are vulnerable to various kinds of attacks because of its shared medium. Wormhole attack, black hole attack, flooding attack, replay attack, snooping attack, denial of service (DoS), link spoofing attack are the kind of attacks that a MANET can suffer from. From the several types of attacks jamming attack is one of the most commonly used attacks utilized by an attacker, in this attack opponents try to overwhelm transmitted signals by introducing a high level of noise. In this paper we provide a survey on different types of attacks in mobile ad hoc network and will mainly focus on jamming attack.
