	%X The aim of this paper is to explore the security issues
that significantly affect the performance of Mobile Adhoc Networks
(MANET)and limit the services provided to their intended users. The
MANETs are more vulnerable to Distributed Denial of Service
attacks (DDoS) because of their properties like shared medium,
dynamic topologies etc. A DDoS attack is a coordinated attempt
made by malicious users to flood the victim network with the large
amount of data such that the resources of the victim network are
exhausted resulting in the deterioration of the network performance.
This paper highlights the effects of different types of DDoS attacks
in MANETs and categorizes them according to their behavior.
