the latter solution is widespread in low cost hosting as it is fast
and simple to install. But I would never use it because it is unsecure
in shared hosting.

FastCGI/FCGI with suexec seems to be as fast as mod_php but harder to
maintain. A good hosting provider should be able to do it correctly.
For me, it's one of the the minimum requirements when I select a web
hosting service.
