There are many, many stories and myths and mysteries about the giant squid, and often these are associated with danger. In fact, the giant squid has been called a sea monster. Some people call it the last great sea monster in the sea, about which we know very little.

There are so many stories about giant squid attacking ships, and attacking boats, and attacking people, but in fact I believe these are all myths. Certainly we don't have any data, photographs, proof that giant squid have ever attacked any people. Even recent authors tend to think that these animals might be dangerous. On the other hand, I don't believe they are.
