The exception that is thrown when there is an invalid attempt to access a method, such as accessing a private method from partially trusted code.

This exception is not included in the .NET for Windows Store apps or the Portable Class Library, but it is thrown by some members that are. To catch the exception in that case, write a catch statement for MemberAccessException instead.
This exception is thrown in situations such as the following:
A private, protected, or internal method that would not be accessible from normal compiled code is accessed from partially trusted code by using reflection.
A security-critical method is accessed from transparent code.
The access level of a method in a class library has changed, and one or more assemblies that reference the library have not been recompiled.
Beginning with the .NET Framework 4, the common language runtime treats application code as transparent when it is run with partial trust. See Security Considerations for Reflection.
