Abstract: Wireless mesh network (WMN) is a multihop wireless network in which the mesh nodes are spread over large area. In most of the WMN applications the mesh nodes are maintained by different operators which lack cooperation and prone to several attacks. In this paper, we present a new form of attack called FRI-Attack, in which an external attacker can drop all the data communications with a single compromised insider (mesh node). Further, we show that none of the the existing secure routing frameworks (to the best of our knowledge) can handle the malicious packet dropping due to the FRI-Attack in WMN and are vulnerable to this newly identified attack.
