Solution:
Solution submitted by Fred Silva <fs@infonet.com.br>:

Run the X server with the option "-nolisten tcp" set. This option causes the X server to not listen connections from any client. To use this option, simply add it to serverargs variable in the /usr/X11/bin/startx script.

FreeBSD has released fixes for this vulnerability.
