The present work is dedicated to study attacks and countermeasures in MANET. After a short introduction to what MANETs are and network security we present a survey of various attacks in MANETs pertaining to fail routing protocols. We also present the different tools used by these attacks and the mechanisms used by the secured routing protocols to counter them. Our work ends with a table which summarizes the advantages and the disadvantages of the mechanisms proposed were presented.
