If you're using the default .htaccess in /files, you shouldn't be worried. It removes execution of scripts, thus you're perfectly save.

Just go and try to download these PHP files.
.htaccess should prevent them from execution but not guarantees for your exact fileserver.

Just add .php to restricted extensions in Site Settings.

Thanks for the reply. Should we also be worried about .exe files? Thanks
