Mobile Adhoc Networks, because collections of moving node and wireless is formed and also due to the dynamic changes in the communication topology, which is quite vulnerable target a wide range of attacks were shown; one of the attacks, Gray hole attack that is easy on reactive routing protocols such as Dynamic Source Routing protocol runs out. Gray hole attack, not the malware behavioral honest during the process of discovery route, but later, the malicious node is leveling; and can route discovery process to transmit information on the network, stirred and network performance to reduce the loss of data. Therefore using this method of detection and removal of malicious attacks, is useful to increase network efficiency and ensure correct data in ad hoc networks is transmitting. In this paper we introduce the attack and investigate the last gray hole existing methods for detecting and removing it is addressed. The paper is concluded with discussion on the results.
