OpenBSD community is quite actively doing great job. It doesn't seem for me like dead OS.

One thing is true: More people is looking at Linux code.
On the other hand security is complicated matter. The less people and companies use the OS, the less interest Internet criminals have to find vulnerabilities and write exploits.
OpenBSD actively is fixing reported bugs. OpenBSD has some security mitigations such as W^X enabled by default. OpenBSD has some great security mechanisms such as pledge and uses them to create daemons with carefully designed privilege-separation to accomplish principle of least privilege.
