there are no known security risks with Lynx 2-8 at present,
but as freeware it comes with all the usual disclaimers
(see  COPYING  which comes with the distribution).
Lynx is developed & maintained by an international on-line community,
whose volunteers care enough about it to tackle challenges promptly,
but again: "Use at your own risk".

obviously, the well known bloatware twins ...
