Not going to comment on Exchange/OWA
Horde/Imp etc. security track record is no worse than any other PHP
based web-mail solution. It has all the attack vectors - PHP, SQL, IMAP
etc. It is so flexible that you can use pretty much any IMAP server
(including Exchange), any SQL DB, any web server, etc. which of course
leaves many possibilities for misconfiguration. What really happens is
that they are sometimes used for sending out spam because of bad
password policies on many servers. To the Horde/IMP developers credit,
they do have rate limiting methods available. It's also used by many
universities throughout the world.
And by the way, check your apache logs... the webmail server script
kiddies are looking for is roundcube
