Is BusyBox more dangerous than it's worth?

Ok, so i rooted my android phone, and i've been using a few root apps, and there's one that i would like to use (a mac address spoofer, don't ask why), and it says it needs busybox to work. So, like anyone with little knowledge of android would do, I googled it.
From what I gathered, it unlocks the linux capabilities inside of android.
Now, it also seems *rather* dangerous to me, although i may be wrong.
If I am not going to be using it for anything other than specific apps, is it really too dangerous for someone with mid-range knowledge of android and programs in general?
Thanks

busy box? of course not. your nefarious use of a Mac address spoofer you don't want us to ask about? definitely dangerous. I hope you get infected or arrested. don't ask us to help with your criminal exploits
