Default Any tether logging apps out there?

Are there any apps out there that can log where my data is being tethered to?
I used about 2 gigs of data on tethering one day and I can't account for half of that usage. Other than the data being used for tethering I wanted to make sure that there isn't some rogue device attached to my tethering.

Anything out that that can log the mac address of devices tethered to me? I am using wifi tethering.

Anything in tasker that I can script at the very least whenever a device is tethered to my phone, log its mac address.

Here's an easier way. Enable wireless encryption. I guarantee there won't be a rogue device trying to connect.

I know the wireless tether for root app used to explicitly tell you what was connecting to the phone.
