Can you tell me, are mild asthmatics at risk for asthma attacks?

In brief: Yes

All asthmatics are at risk for severe asthma attacks.
Unfortunately being a mild asthmatic does not preclude one from have a severe asthma flare.

I would modify it to say that all asthmatics are potentially susceptible to attacks especially during a viral respiratory tract infection or exposure to a strong allergen in great abundance.
