I have taken very few precautions, but all my firewall and sharing settings seem alright. Any clues?

Is something on your machine trying to send info out?

If so then a program called little snitch will tell you which apps are attempting to do this

I downloaded little snitch but it seems the groups of attempts don't seem to be registering. They come about 10 at a time. I've shuffled all my passwords, but the IP's are rolling about every half hour.

AS long as your firewall is on and any unwanted ports are off (like ftp and windows filesharing) you are safe

It looks like someone is just blanket sniffing any machines out there with a range of IP addresses, you Mac is safe from any attempts, but I would edit your post on here to obscure your own IP address
