やばい can mean things like 'awesome' too. Has the implication of crossing the line.

"あぶない = 危ない" means "danger" or "dangerous".

やばい is a "Japanese slang word".
It's not polite.

It means inconvenient things or situation for oneself.

It has meaning of the "dangerous" too same as あぶない,
But also has many other meanings,

For Example,

Chancy
Hairy
Risky
Awesome!
Oh, no!
Oops!
Darn!
Oh dang!
Oh crap!
This is bad..
Here comes trouble.
in deep shit
...

It used in this way,

やばい! 警官が来るぞ! 逃げろ!
Oh, shit! Cop is coming! Run!
