While you'll maybe be safe simply because you don't have enough users (but
remember, it only takes one attack from one malicious user, no matter how
few you have total or how soon their access is revoked), I wouldn't be so
sure. The HTML output suggests this is done via forms on a page, and check
boxes/dropdowns/etc. are submitted as their value. This means if someone
edits the page, or simply sends a false request, the values you receive may
*not* be expected values.

Basically: never trust *anything* sent via an HTML form unless you've
checked it and/or sanitized it already.
