"But fonts aren’t scripts. They can’t be executed to do malicious things. So the deeper question is, what’s the motivation behind this?" 🤔 http://schock.net/articles/2013/07/03/hosting-web-fonts-on-a-cdn-youre-going-to-need-some-cors/
 
Womp womp https://googleprojectzero.blogspot.com/2015/07/one-font-vulnerability-to-rule-them-all.html
 
I mean *sort of*. But mostly it seems like a convenient cover story for basic font DRM.
 
It may be that the DRM lobby likes this result, but that doesn't change the fact that YES ABSOLUTELY fonts are scripts and should be subject to same-origin restrictions.
 
I disagree that they are "scripts" in any of the sense that JavaScript is, though. I agree that there can be weird low-level "oops C++ did it again" exploits, but that's also true of bitmaps and JPGs.
 
SVG is a better argument here, and yeah, SVG gets hella weird.
 
Dude OTF fonts are literally PostScript
 
I mean look at how specific this is: https://security.stackexchange.com/questions/91347/how-can-a-font-be-used-for-privilege-escalation "Typically, exploits that target TTF and OTF vulnerabilities target drivers" which is massively OS specific
 
I gather that "Outlines are drawn using a Turing Complete language to manipulate the graphics state" does not give you pause but I'm here to tell you that this is exactly why same-origin was invented.

I love that ping(8) has flag: -a Audible ping. Except that both my screen(1) and macOS Terminal app had visual bell enabled, so to actually get the sound I had to disable two layers of noise prevention. And then audible ping wasn't even satisfying. Not a sonar ping.
