comment Get status of username from active directory in SharePoint 2010
The properties in AD are not a security issue because they don't expose anything like a users password and inside an organization things like when a user account was created or what accounts a user belongs to is generally information that's not privileged. You'll have to check with your own security group in case you're exposing properties like phone numbers or something and if that's okay or not.
