Available via software update or the download pages below for 10.14.6 Delta/Combo and 10.13.6/10.12.6 Security Updates. Here's info from the Mojave 10.14.6 release notes.
"The macOS Mojave 10.14.6 update improves the stability and reliability of your Mac, and is recommended for all users. This update:

  • Makes downloaded issues available in the My Magazines section of Apple News+, both online and offline.

  • Adds the ability to clear downloaded magazine issues in Apple News+ by selecting History > Clear > Clear All.

  • Addresses an issue which prevents creation of a new Boot Camp partition on iMac and Mac mini with Fusion Drive.

  • Resolves an issue that may cause a hang during a restart.

  • Resolves a graphics issue that may occur when waking from sleep.

  • Fixes an issue that may cause fullscreen video to appear black on Mac mini.

  • Improves file sharing reliability over SMB.

    Enterprise content:
  • Addresses an issue where file-sharing connections would potentially drop.

  • The 10.14.6 update includes Safari 12.1.2, available for 10.13.6/10.12.6 via software update.
    (See below for docs on security fixes in 10.14.6, Security Update 2019-004 and Safari 12.1.2.)

    Downloads of the Updates:
    (Update: Apple pulled Security Update 2019-004, then reissued it July 29th.)

    Related Articles on the Updates

    (Again Apple released macOS and iOS/tvOS/watchOS updates simultaneously so servers may be swamped initially.)

    FYI: the original (July 22nd) Security Update 2019-004 caused kernel panics after wake from sleep for many users. (Some said the problem affected T1 and T2 chip Macs.) Apple pulled Security Update 2019-004 for both OS's and rereleased it July 29th. (Initial reports on the revised update seem positive from those that had problems with the original release.)

    Reminder to Users of Nvidia Web Drivers:
    (There's been no Mojave Nvidia web driver updates yet, but a reminder to 10.13.6/10.12.6 users of Nvidia's web graphics drivers.) New OS updates or later build numbers after Security Updates typically break currently installed Nvidia web graphics drivers. I'd switch to the default Apple driver and reboot before updating, if your card is supported with the default drivers. If not, wait for a Nvidia driver update. (Some non-Mac EFI cards are not supported by default OS X drivers.)
