Unlike, old and wise radio networks which have belief in on fixed base structure for the news, ad hocnetworks do not have any fixed base structure rather it is the group of the self-ruled and self-organized readily moved
network points. These readily moved network points are free to move in and out of the network. MANET is more open to
attack to safety attacks of the bad network points because it has no clear apparatus of arguments for person whom law
process is against. The openness, forceful and infrastructure-less nature makes it prone to the safety being, saying violent
behavior. As the existence of bad network points is one of the greatest safety being, saying violent behavior in the
MANET, so it has become necessary to give effect to a strong answer for its safety. MANET can be attacked by 2 kind of
attacks active(action-bound) and passive(actionless) attacks. Active attacks are wormhole attack, black hole attack, gray
hole attack, flooding, spoofing and so on. and hearing private talk on purpose, business trade observations comes in the
sort of passive attacks. In this paper paper, We have introduced a wormhole attacks, representing what the wormhole
attacks are in current, how they attack the network and the Consequences caused by these attacks. Wormhole attack aims
disguise itself as the shortest way than the first form shortest way in the network, in that way, confusing the sending the
way mechanisms of the things not fixed ad-hoc network. It can be easily pushed into water without having any before
knowledge of the network and its safety mechanisms gave effect to within the network. This paper gives one's mind to an
idea on the MANET and the Consequences of wormhole attack by making, be moving in the related make observations of
earlier years.
