Bittorrent security hazards?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

I'm running a bittorrent client/server (Azureus, a
java program) under Xandros (i.e. Debian).  At any one time
I may have more than a dozen active connections involved in
bittorrent file exchange.  Are there any particular security
hazards associated with this that I should be aware of, and
how can I safeguard my machine from them?  My host machine
is protected with a firewall (Firestarter), and it sits
behind a NAT router.
