Any risk of attack when using hg?

Dear list,

I wonder if there are any risks of attack from crackers if I run
mercurial daemon
with no authorization. I don't care anonymous users clone my source code or
push/pulls their changesets. But if there is a possibility to crack my server
thorough hg, it can be a big problem. So I want to know whether this can be
a problem.

Hg runs with HTTP, and only has permission of normal user. Remote user can
access the repository via the command: hg clone http://***.***.***.***:**** .
Thank you.
