It's not the nginx's problem.
Do you have php security settings
like disable_functions, allow_url_fopen, open_basedir ?
Do you have the firewall on your server?
Do you use selinux ?
Also nginx + apache + mod_php + mod_security is enough good schema.

Nginx is just fast and simple web server, created with security in mind.
