Distributed Erlang Security

Are there any provisions for code security in Erlang?  To make this 
question concrete, suppose I implemented a Gnutella-like system in 
Erlang.  Every user now runs an Erlang node.  Suppose one of the users is 
malicious; could they execute arbitrary code on the other user's 
machines?  Is there any way to use Erlang with untrusted users?
