internal/scan: change the way convert mode works

This changes convert mode to just modify the source of vulnerabilities
This means it builds the output and handles exit codes like normal.
This fixes the fact that convert does not obey -show flags, or return failure on vulnerabilities.

Go Vulnerability Management

Go Reference

Go's support for vulnerability management includes tooling for analyzing your codebase and binaries to surface known vulnerabilities in your dependencies. This tooling is backed by the Go vulnerability database, which is curated by the Go security team. Go’s tooling reduces noise in your results by only surfacing vulnerabilities in functions that your code is actually calling.

You can install the latest version of govulncheck using go install

go install

Then, run govulncheck inside your module:

govulncheck ./...

See the govulncheck tutorial to get started, and for more information about Go's support for vulnerability management. The API documentation can be found at
