the comments in the linuxtex-cookbook-recipe say, that it is not very safe.
To be specific, it is very easy to read any file on the server by just 
using something like

{$ 1 $ \input{/etc/passwd} $ 2  $}

I  don't know how to remove this vulnerablity completely. (Just 
filtering \input) might not be enough, since it might be hidden in other 
commands as well.

The great thing about being the only species that makes
a distinction between right and wrong is that we can 
make up the rules for ourselves as we go along.
