Maybe stupid question, but just want to be sure before deploying contract on main net. In my contract user can change his name(:string) to whatever he likes. Is it totally safe? I mean, is here some chance of 'overflow' string, change any other variables through that or something similar as SQL Injection? Thanks.


As far as I know you can't really 'overflow' it or anything similar. You can find a lot more information here: Use string type or bytes32?

What your users can do is assign a very long string and if your contract uses the string for something it will cost a lot of gas to process. So consider limiting the length (by using bytes).
