Mobile Ad hoc Networks have been highly vulnerable to attacks due to the dynamic nature of its network infrastructure. Among these attacks, routing attacks have received considerable attention since it could cause the most devastating damage to MANET. In existing solutions typically attempt to isolate malicious nodes based on binary or naive fuzzy response decisions. However, binary responses may result in the unexpected network partition, causing additional damages to the network infrastructure. In this paper proposes a risk-aware response mechanism to systematically cope with the identified routing attacks. To avoid the routing attacks Dijkstra’s and Destination sequenced Distance Vector algorithm are used. Dijkstra's algorithm solves the single-source shortest-path problem when all edges have non-negative weights. The primary improvement for ad hoc networks made in DSDV over conventional distance vector is the addition of a sequence number in each routing table entry.
