Is it safe for me to host a Minecraft server?

A group of friends and I host a Minecraft server in turns. However, some of them are bothered by the fact that hosting a server can expose themselves to virus attacks.

We are connected in a network at Hamachi, and the network is protected with a password. Only real world friends can join his network.

Can someone tell me in a clear and unbiased way the risks of hosting a server? I have been hosting for months and I still haven’t found a virus.
