Upgrade github.com/wal-g/wal-g/internal to version 1.1.0 or higher.

Overview

github.com/wal-g/wal-g/internal is a tool that provides archival restoration for PostgreSQL

Affected versions of this package are vulnerable to Information Disclosure. When a non-libsodium build (e.g., one of the official binary releases published as GitHub Releases) is used, silently ignores the libsodium encryption key and uploads cleartext backups. This is arguably a Principle of Least Surprise violation because "the user likely wanted to encrypt all file activity."
