Security is a major threat and essential requirement for mobile Ad Hoc network. Due to its inherent characteristics, it has many consequent challenges, which needs to be taken care of. In this paper we analyse the black hole attack in MANET using AODV as its routing protocol. Black hole is a type of routing attack where a malicious node impersonates a destination node by sending deceived route reply packet to a source node that initiates a route discovery process. By doing this, the malicious node can deprive the traffic from the source node. We propose a solution that makes a modification in existing AODV routing protocol
