Here you are if you don't want to search :))
1. Deliberately cruel or violent.
2. (of an animal) Wild and dangerous to people
and in this sentence ''vicious'' means ''Wild and dangerous '' ;)

Why would a learner not be prepared to develop their independence, especially where the only hardship is to click on a link and type in a word then hit 'enter'?

Aside from the fact that there is no such word as 'u', your answer is misleading. In this sentence there is no necessity that the word relates directly to people.
