Is downloading fonts in IE 10 safe?

JDI-IT asked
Last Modified: 2015-03-27
My organization currently has the "font download" option disabled in the Internet zone of ie10.  I believe this was done to prevent fonts from running malicious code.  I saw that back in 2013 there was a ms security bulletin that addressed the issue.  Would it be a big security risk to enable font downloading at this point?
