This is Microsoft FUD. Think about Apache, (by far) the most widely
used web server, but its resistance to attacks has not decreased.

In fact, having a large userbase can help find the problems faster. The
willingness to fix them and actually applying the patch (which is in
the hands of the users) is what really counts.
