Laravel fanboy here.

The Laravel core team puts a ton of effort into nailing security aspects of PHP down so you may be pleasantly surprised. Also PHP7 is a different animal than it's predecessors although like most languages it has its issues still.

A lot of the issues for security revolve around the fact that PHP makes it easy to do things many different ways with most of those ways not being a best practice, but with the low barrier to entry many beginners will write unsecure PHP code.

If you're curious I suggest checking out the Laravel from scratch series on to get a feel for the framework.
