If one argues that people shouldn't use Wordpress because its popularity makes it a target, one should also argue against the use of Windows PCs for the same reason, if one wishes to appear consistent. ;)
Wordpress out of the box is not without vulnerabilities - just like a PC without virus software. But in both cases, there's a lot you can do to make them more secure. You just have to be aware there's a problem, find out what you need to do, and then do it.
