Wireless Mesh Network is a new networking paradigm. In the development of wireless mesh networks routing is the main issue. There are different security flaws and attacks on routing protocols in wireless mesh networks. These attacks can affect the performance of different routing protocols. Wormhole is one of these attacks. The wormhole attack can affect the performance of different routing protocols. During this attack, a malicious node captures packets from one location in the network, and “tunnels” them to another malicious node at a distant point, which replays them locally. This paper illustrates how wormhole attack can affect the performance of routing protocols in wireless mesh networks by using QualNet simulator.
