Chrome – OTS parsing error: invalid version tag

I saw this weird warning in Chrome’s DevTools while looking at a site:

OTS parsing error: invalid version tag

Uh-huh. That’s a bit strange. Unable to download fonts? What caused that?

Well, I tried going to the font’s URL – and got the ‘Page Not Found’ page! Well, that’s annoying – but a 404 page is clearly not a font.

However, this site’s error pages return HTTP 200 – so Chrome expects a font…

Make sure your error pages return a correct HTTP status code. If you don’t, it can cause problems. Normally, I find that it’s false positives on automated penetration tests, but this is a new and exciting variation.
