Like with any P2P service provider...

Firstly that many of the files are ilegal copies.

And with ilegal copies of any file increases the risk of introducing virus's, worm ect, some just a pain but others could corrupt your whole system.

Also it expects you to share files with other, so if not set-up properly you could be sharing or leaving open all your files to others across the net! And even you are happy to share files, when people are downloading from your computer it does take up bandwith... Many not be a major problem if using a high speed BB, but could be hassel if on a low BB or dail-up.

If it safe well it properly mid to high risk in saftey depending the source and what your are downloading, and how well you set it up!
