    Well, since you can specify the access rights in the local machine for the domain account, the possible security issues of Domain/Local Accounts are the same. The Domain account can even be configured as a "guest" in the local machine.
     
    As for security issues, remember the account with which the (COM+) package will run, needs only the "LogOn As a Batch Job" access right and (RX) Read Execute access to that specific DLL.
     
    Hope it helps,

            If you have to install a component or an application that runs using an
            account , what are the disadvantages/risks (from security standpoint)of
            using a Domain Account instead of a Local Account and vice versa.
