Local means that you have to have shell access to the machine in order to run the exploit. SSH allows you to have shell access "remotely" but that is not a remote exploit. This still requires shell access and that is not something that should be given to users unless absolutely necessary, if you are enabling sftp access and not locking down the shell then you've already failed.
