Yesterday's article said 'vulnerable', thus virtually defenseless against any possible attack. This is surely what it means.

'Prone to' in the title above has the further nuance of suffering repeatedly, as in 'prone to colds', or 'prone to catching flu every winter'.

The Japanese press are saying only that defensive measures are only partly functioning, or 不備 Fubi, meaning inadequate. No suggestion anywhere yet that the place has ever actually been attacked.
