Must be your lucky day, I just got this in my e-mail also:

http://www.hackinglinuxexposed.com/articles/20040513.html

"Not all X11 servers listen on the network by default any more -- this is
a very good thing. The server also will listen on a unix socket, which is
equivalent to a TCP port except it's available via a file on the local
machine. Processes can connect to it only if they are on this machine,
which makes this avenue unavailable from outside machines. "
