Question Question about security implications of Jailbreaking

The jailbreak sounds amazing and I'm so so close to doing it. However, what are the security implications of actually using one of these jailbreak applications?

Have people examined the programme script etc to see if there is anything malicious within them? Ie spyware or some sort of malicious code that could be sending private information somewhere? That is my only concern with the jailbreakign of my ipod as I don't want email passwords etc revealed to hackers etc.

I'm no expert so if someone wuld be so kind as to fill me in then I'd be very grateful...

I suppose in this day and age everyone is extremely security concerned!
