But ECL is its own VM and one may easily prevent that binaries be
loaded. That leaves you with the Common-Lisp library and whatever
Mozilla exposes to running scripts, with the same security issues as
javascript. The only true security issues are in my opinion related to
whether the code in ECL is safe enough or not.
