https://cert.cx/appleios10/700k.php
https://cert.cx/appleios10/900k.php

or https://cert.cx/appleios10/expl.html

just click on this link by using Safari. 

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5. Safari and sandbox
How is possible that safari don't ask user before run 'Preferences' app to start process of importing certificate? Safari automatically start new process without asking user for acceptance of this operation what can be exploited through http redirect to untrusted content.
