There's no reason to be wary of zip files - Apple wouldn't have built in support for it if it was a bad file type. Sure, it's possible that something bad can be distributed but it's just as likely to be distributed as a dmg file. In essence, they are both just formats for containing/compressing files and each is no more dangerous than the other in and of itself.
