    It happens.

    If somebody repeatedly clicks your ads with malicious intent, chances are your Adsense account will get disabeled.

    How do I prevent this without using any third party plugins that will also raise the chances of my Adsense account being disabled?

    You can't. This is something Google has to deal with.

    Just do your best so they don't think it's you.

    New accounts yeah. Older accounts with a history of payments will stand up to such attacks.

    The problem is how they'd know whether it's a bomb or straight up fraud? If you don't have a history, they don't know.

    Now if you lose an aged account that never cheated, then I'd be concerned.

    The second you find out someone click-bombed your website, use this form to notify Adsense about it. https://support.google.com/adsense/contact/invalid_clicks_contact

    I've never had to use that form, but at least this way Google will know you made an effort to let them know about it. After all, what kind of fraud would let Google know about the clicks?
