I've been searching and haven't been able to find anything on this.
There are lots of free fonts available online in
.otf format. After downloading them, you
Right click->Install to install the font on the system.
My question is whether there are any security risks when installing fonts in this manner. I don't know how the installation process works and viewing the file in a text editor shows it's not plain text, so I can't simply verify at a glance that it won't do anything bad.
Are .otf fonts safe to install on Windows?
