Abstract: MANET is a class of network, which is customarily embracing numerous mobile nodes that do not hold any firm organization. The MANET hold peculiarities such as circumscribed battery power, bandwidth, range, security, etc, which has primarily become the reason for researchers to carry out the study. In MANETs, the transmission of the packets from the initiator to the destined nodes is regularly done via the midway nodes in the network, hence proving security to be a vital affair. There are certain categories of attacks that are prevalent in MANETs that regularly demote the system performance. In this work, the proposal is to perform comprehensive study on the numerous sorts of attacks that are prevailing in the MANETs together with their alleviation strategies put forth by numerous researchers. Post per-forming this study, there are some proposals to the studied existing alleviation strategies; which helps to provide and improve the performance and security issues.
Keywords: MANET; Peculiarities of MANET; Categories of Attacks; Alleviation Ideas; Security.
