Vehicular Ad-Hoc Networks (VANETs) isan indivisible component of I.T.S., where nodes are autonomous self-organizing and selfmanaging information in a distributed fashion. Its foundation is based on the co-ordination of vehicles and/or roadside units by which information is disseminated in network in organized way. In recent years, VANET has been taken more attention of automotive industries and researchers due to life saving factor. But always coin has two faces, when we know about its life saving factors at the same time security threats for VANET is also arises, so now VANET needs security to implement the ad hoc environment and serves users with commercial and safety applications. In this paper, we have done a survey of attack on network availability and its severity levels in VANET environment, which known as Denial of Service (DOS) attack, along with that different kind of hybrid Denial of Service attackis also present in it with their existing solutions.
