No.

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.

There were alot of us D&D geeks in the Navy too, used to play on the aircraft carrier while out on a cruise. Everyday after that 12 hr shift you head down to the forward galley and there were at least 2 games going on, sometimes more. You didn't even have to really be a part of the campaign you could just sit down, roll up a char and play for a couple hours. Played with alot of great people, we even had some officers who played.

Gary will be missed, he gave us geeks hidden down in the basement hours and hours of enjoyment.

Variables don't; constants aren't.
