macOS 10.14.6 Supplemental Update
I've not seen a download page for it (yet), but Apple's released a Supplemental Update for macOS 10.14.6. The article about security content of macOS 10.14.6 Supplemental Update simply says "macOS 10.14.6 Supplemental Update for macOS Mojave includes the security content of Safari 14.0."

And as of Oct. 2, the download page for Security Update 2020-005 (Mojave) is back online.
(I'm sure many are leery of trying it again. Check Apple's Mojave forum for feedback.)

Security Update 2020-005 Mojave and Safari 14.0 Pulled (now Back again)
(Update - as of Oct. 2nd check, the download page for Security Update 2020-005 is back online.)
Late posting this (not running Mojave), but JMan sent a note that due to problems reported, Apple pulled Security Update 2020-005 Mojave, and Safari 14.0 (for Mojave at least).
(He later said he had to reinstall 10.14.6, and later reapplied the updates OK.)
I disabled the Security Update 2020-005 Mojave download link (page was pulled) on last week's updates and added a note on the archived page post on Safari 14.0.
(I restored the link on Oct. 2nd after download page back online again.)
