Turn the circuit breaker to the off position. Then unhook the wire that you need. Those end caps are called marrettes. If you a really sketched out about doing this then you should go to library and find out how to do it. There is no danger of getting electrocuted, but there is a fire hazard associated with improperly installed fixtures! Also, it begs the question, was the wire there for a previously installed fixture or are you going to steal the wire that's being used to power something in the attic?
