THe address bar says apple.com and I don't have other admins or ever used the guest account on my machine. And surprisingly, it must be either coincidence, or have to do with the recent OSX update, it has happened a couple of times since I posted this question. Nothing else looks suspicious. Never installed extensions in Safari (I use chrome and sometimes firefox).

comment How can I enable SSH without using the gui or apple script on snow leopard?
Thanks. Also is there a way to add remove users who can ssh. You know in the UI you can choose who can use the "remote login".

comment Add a new user with a specific uid and gid
On Mac the "standard" procedure is to change the userid and group id through GUI and then run something like find /Users/USERNAME -user OLDUSERID -exec chown NEWUSERID {}\; . You can use the same dscl . -create command to overwrite/change the user id as far as I know but it maybe a bit tricky!

If you set the uid above 500 it would show up in the Preferences and you can login as well, I think you can login even if it's uid is below 500 but you need to choose other (pre-lion) and enter both user name and password.
