postgresql-14 (14.9-0ubuntu0.22.04.1) jammy-security; urgency=medium

  * New upstream version (LP: #2028426).

    + A dump/restore is not required for those running 14.X.

    + However, if you use BRIN indexes, it may be advisable to reindex them.

    + Also, if you are upgrading from a version earlier than 14.4, see
      those release notes as well please.

    + Disallow substituting a schema or owner name into an extension script
      if the name contains a quote, backslash, or dollar sign (Noah Misch)

      This restriction guards against SQL-injection hazards for trusted

    + Fix confusion between empty (no rows) ranges and all-NULL ranges in
      BRIN indexes, as well as incorrect merging of all-NULL summaries
      (Tomas Vondra)

      Each of these oversights could result in forgetting that a BRIN
      index range contains any NULL values, potentially allowing
      subsequent queries that should return NULL values to miss doing so.

      This fix will not in itself correct faulty BRIN entries.
      It's recommended to REINDEX any BRIN indexes that
      may be used to search for nulls.

    + Details about these and many further changes can be found at:
