asked on 

what is the danger in permitting members to upload documents to your database?

We permit members to upload certain file types; pdf, docs, xlms, jpg and some other image file types  from our website into a database table where they are stored as a longblob (MySQL) and the documents/images can be viewed / downloaded by the member as well.

What is the danger of them introducing some malevolent code that would affect our database or our server?  What steps could we take to mitigate this?
