    Not if you do it right:

    Actually you won't lose anything even if you screw up.
    Have you backed up your database lately?

    If you follow the instructions on upgradeing, you'll lose the security vulnerabilities that were in the older versions!!

    You shouldn't. However, as a precaution, you should always back up your database and any other relevant files before attempting to upgrade.

    There is a database backup plugin (included with WordPress 2 by default) that can help at times, too.
