A Mobile Ad-Hoc Network (MANET) is defined as an arrangement of wireless mobile nodes which creates a temporary network for the communication. MANET doesn’t having any access point. Due to high availability of wireless devices infrastructure-less networks are using every day’s life. MANET is suffering from both kinds of attacks, active and passive attacks at all the layers of network model. Wormhole attack is one the most severe attack on routing protocols in which two or more malicious nodes receive packets at one point of network and transmit them another location by wired or wireless tunnel. This attack can form a serious threat in wireless networks, especially against many wireless ad-hoc networks and location-based wireless security systems. There is several wormhole detection methods in the wireless ad-hoc networks which some of them are reviewed in this paper.
