    I'm using MyWi 4.7 on iOS 4.0.1 and I noticed recently that the Active Users list is showing many users.

    I've set up WEP security so I doubt there is any "intruder" in the WiFi network created by MyWi.

    When I go to see the details on the Active Users list, I noticed that the IP addresses are not in the 192.168.x.x range. There are IP addresses from all over the world (I've looked them up).
    Those Active Users show up as having 0 connections. I don't know what that could mean.

    As those are external IP addresses I'm afraid that people are getting access to my iPhone. How could these users be connected to my MyWi ?

    I've performed a portscan on my iPhone and all ports appear as closed.

    Has anyone else experienced the same symptoms ?

    I didn't want to take such extreme approach... let's see if someone has a smother solution... :(

    As I mentioned in my initial post, I have WEP enabled with a pretty hard to guess key... There are no vultures using my WiFi ;)

    How hard is it to load Cydia, remove the app, and reinstall the app? It's simple to do....

    I believe you can even shorten that further by simply hitting "reinstall".

    The pirated version of MyWi is very difficult to install. I assume that's what he's using since he considers a reinstall extreme. Otherwise, as you say, it's essentially a single button push.

    Perhaps the phrase 'restore it then reload it' might have been misinterpreted by the OP to mean 'restore the phone and reload the phone.' hence the characterization of 'extreme'.

    I've purchased MyWi.

    Exactly ! I thought ClutchThese was suggesting that I restored the phone. :D

    I'll try to reinstall the app...

    I was being charitable. I didn't think you misinterpreted anything. It was a very poorly written sentence.
