One would think that insurance companies would try to lower the risk

After all with $100Million you can easily design your own computing platform including operating system and hardware. That would, at worst, be a bit more secure because it would be simpler and would obscure the rest of the bugs as it's more obscure. At best this would be a fundamentally new step towards more secure systems.

Of course selling insurance and not paying is a much easier way to make money.
