As simple as open http://www.google.com
and search that....

Few links for you:

http://www.atm.tut.fi/list-archive/freebsd-security/msg04562.html

"login -p can be used to propagate environment flags
in order to trojan the user shell of the target account. There
are several significant cases:
* Dynamically-linked target shell.
* Target account shell is a shell script"


Not necessarily applicable to your case but close.

Anshumali is suggesting that your process looks similar to a known attack: someone may be trying to break into your system.
