Default Security fix 001

I just installed 6.4 and am not sure what I should do here. Does the patch do the chmod for me? Or do I need to do the chmod as well as run syspatch? I am on a desktop using xenodm and cwm.

001: SECURITY FIX: October 25, 2018 All architectures
The Xorg X server incorrectly validates certain options, allowing arbitrary files to be overwritten. As an immediate (temporary) workaround, the Xorg binary can be disabled by running: chmod u-s /usr/X11R6/bin/Xorg
A source code patch exists which remedies this problem.

You just have to install the syspatch.
