Using scripts in your account that are insecure (vulnerabilities unpatched) is very dangerous. Doing so runs the risk of account suspension or exploit from a third party which can cause total account compromise, data loss or account suspension/termination (if used by the person for warez, spam, etc).

Therefore, it is extremely important that all scripts in use are the latest version and secure.

A good way of determining whether a script is secure is to type the script name into along with the word "exploit" which will bring up any security topics associated with the script that can be researched. For example, a search on PHP-Nuke can be seen here.
