Applying the patch a3aa62daea2e44c76d08d1eac63768cd928cd69e is able to eliminate this problem. The bugfix is ready for download at github.com. The best possible mitigation is suggested to be upgrading to the latest version. A possible mitigation has been published immediately after the disclosure of the vulnerability. The advisory contains the following remark:

In a mistaken attempt to make defining ENV vars easier, Elixir would define every ENV var using Webpack's `DefinePlugin`. This was a mistake. The entire ENV of the server generating the bundle would be serialized into an object and delivered in the JavaScript bundle. This code has been removed. You need to allow ENV variables using the webpack's `DefinePlugin` or `EnvironmentPlugin`. To make this easier, Elixir now has a `mix.env` method that forwards all arguments on to `EnvironmentPlugin`.
