What makes the web dangerous?
What are the dangers, and what are their attack vectors?
Is everyone equally vulnerable?

I don't mean to sound mean spirited, but to be helpful: if you're able to better explain some of the above, I believe your Instructable would benefit even more people.

The web is dangerous because of viruses mostly.
Not everyone is equally vulnerable for example people who use Windows vs people who use Mac or Linux.

Thanks for asking!
