in thread Yet Another Security Question
Depending on your security needs... running your script as your user account will expose your personal data if there is a security bug. And that could be bad... particularly if you are using private key authentication, or have sudo access to some parts of the system. Whereas, if the webserver is compromised, you're exposing everybody's web data, probably the ftp server also, but not much else.
Snazzy tagline here
