For those unaware, SQLite is the most widespread database engine in the world and is used for development across platforms no matter the OS, browser or the device. "Windows 10, macOS, iOS, Chrome, Safari, Firefox and Android are popular users of SQLite".
Normally, that's no easy feat because "all executable files must be signed as part of Apple's Secure Boot". "Luckily for us, SQLite databases are not signed", the report quoted the Check Point researchers as saying.

Do you think someone will be able to hack the iPhone?
Wait, what? How come a four-year-old bug has never been fixed? Check Point's hack works on devices running iOS 8 through the beta versions of iOS 13.
Speaking at the Def Con 2019 security conference in Las Vegas this week, researchers from Check Point demonstrated a rare vulnerability in iOS that could allow attackers to run malicious code on Apple devices. The bug could be triggered only by an unknown app accessing the database.More news: Vikings get kicker/punter Kaare Vedvik in trade with Ravens
This year alone has seen Apple exposed by a variety of flaws and vulnerabilities that could impact their users.
But now that the bug bounty program includes all of Apple's platforms, hopefully this will keep its security ahead of any attacks in the future. Principal security researcher at Jamf - who's found more than a few issues within the macOS - has said that "if you're a large, well-resourced company such as Apple, who claims to place a premium on security, having a bug-bounty program is a no brainer".
Cybersecurity firms such as the NSO Group demand over a million dollars from government agencies and private clients for remotely breaking into an iPhone.
The bug bounty program, which previously offered rewards of up to $200,000 for finding problems in iOS devices, first launched in 2016.More news: Here are the Camera Samples from the Galaxy Note 10
