internal/vulncheck: define Binary over Bin

This simplifies tests for binary and forces us to move other tests to
more appropriate places. Further, internal/scan will use it to load
inputs from a new binary extract mode. For the same reason, also make
the stdlib runtime copies available in internal. This also makes them
more visible.

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
