Security issues with XMLDB.

Good afternoon, everyone.

I have a question concerning the security issues of using http service of XMLDB..

I'm going to set the http port of XMLDB on my production database so I can call
remote jobs on machines that have the Scheduler Agent installed. (http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B28359_01/server.111/b28310/schedadmin003.htm)
My question is, what kind of security threats I have to be aware of by opening the xmldb http service port?
Is there any article or documentation that could help me in this subject?

Thanks for the patience.

Regards, Leandro Freitas.
