There's currently no known security issues in XFS exists.
There was one XSS found recently, but it was already fixed in current version.

What was that one, admin?

Those sites that were hacked all used the same passwords for admin areas as other sites as far as I know. They also extracted passwords from a xfile site that stored them in plain text when you clicked on the users tab (custom modded to do so).

We only have information about XSS hacking attempts. I mean only confirmed attempts (have log records of such attempts).

The only thing to be worried about it to make sure you do not let your users upload dangerous file types such as php files. If the user were to know a little bit about xfilesharing and know where the actual files are stored (not the download page) they could perhaps execute a php shell.

Although I have not tried this for myself, but it could work in theory depending on whether or not there is any kind of preventative measures setup to disallow php from being executed within the upload directory, I don't think I saw any but I could be wrong.

But like I said, the script allows you to determine which file types can and cannot be uploaded so this isn't much of a worry.
