Default Is using GAIM safe?

I have a newbie question. Are there any security issues with downloading and running GAIM on your PC? I'm new to open source and want to make sure I'm not opening my computer up to something I don't want to. I just want to know if there are any issues I should be aware of before I use it.

Thanks

well, being that it comes from SourceForge, I would say it's very safe.
They produce very good products.
