Default test cases for data submission

One thing you should consider expecially when submitting data to the database is
validating users input. For example, do you restrict submission of text only or
alpha numeric characters only. What if someone wants to sabotage your test project by submitting a script with bug/virus.

Yeah, that is true for any web database. You have to use valdication rules that prevent malicious scripts. So you need to know the syntax of the scripts, and prevent certain actions by web users.
