The title is a bit misleading. Apple Pay accounts or transactions themselves aren't inherently insecure...at least as discovered yet.

Turns out that some banks have opted out of some verification measures in the process of linking cards to Apple Pay , making it easier for stolen cards to be linked to accounts.

So there's some shared blame, as Apple could have mandated those measures. But, it'd be nice if banks just assumed that would be a good idea.
One of Apple's big selling points -- perhaps the biggest -- for Apple Pay was that this ;sharp new ;payment-processing system it unveiled last September would be all but immune from fraud. "It's easy, it's secure, and it's private," Apple executive Eddy Cue declared ;at the rollout event. ;

The way I read it, because Apple hides the credit card information it's more difficult for merchants to do a credit check. Apple themselves don't do a credit check. So the flaw from a merchant's point of view is they don't know where the money is coming from. That's an opportunity for fraud.
