This repository holds the GitHub Action for govulncheck. Govulncheck reports known vulnerabilities that affect Go code. It uses static analysis of source code or a binary's symbol table to narrow down reports to only those that could affect the application. You can read more about govulncheck at https://pkg.go.dev/golang.org/x/vuln/cmd/govulncheck.
The govulncheck GitHub Action is currently experimental and is under active development.
