ICMP ping

I have created a broadband quality monitor at thinkbroadband.com. In order for it to work I have to allow ICMP ping requests. I have now done this for the firewall in my McAfee Security Center Ver 10.5 and the quality monitor now seems to be working. However, is there a downside or any potential problems or any risks in allowing ICMP ping requests?
