And this is why I have blocked all fonts for the last fifteen years.

I'm a bit concerned by the words " in some cases by simply putting the font on a web page viewed by the target" though. That has shades of 'Conficker', whereby disabling Autoplay didn't help because the mere fact of a call to Autoplay having been made by the insertion of a CD/DVD/USB was enough to compromise the system.
