internal/vulncheck: add LoadModules using go.mod

Instead of finding modules via the package imports graph, this uses the
go list command to list all dependent modules. This will eventually
enable module mode to work as intended (fixing edge cases where if a
module was only imported within a test file or a file with a specific
build rule, it wouldn't be considered for vulnerabilities in module mode
even though it should.)

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
