dpkg configuration script does not escape input

    Details

      Description

      The configuration script invoked by `dpkg` does not do any escaping of the root password, failing the installation if certain characters are used.

      Sample input (generated by `pwgen`): Hyw4Go,:ItWku*N"%|3JE#`5HzKzW{Uq

      Outcome:
      ERROR: 1064 You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MariaDB server version for the right syntax to use near '|3JE#`5HzKzW{Uq") WHERE user='root';' at line 1
