'ClassLoader' instantiation

Reports instantiations of the java.lang.ClassLoader class.

While often benign, any instantiations of ClassLoader should be closely examined in any security audit.


Class<?> loadExtraClass(String name) throws Exception { try(URLClassLoader loader = new URLClassLoader(new URL[]{new URL("extraClasses/")})) { return loader.loadClass(name); } }
