According to the post announcing the update, CVE-2020-14750 is related to CVE-2020-14882, which the company addressed in its October 2020 Critical Patch Update. The vulnerabilities are considered to be highly critical because they are simple, and can be exploited remotely and without authentication: no user name or password required.
