Forum Thread: How to Define Remote Code Execution?

If an exploit only works on a lan, and not a wan(internet), but does result in code execution and a shell, is it classes as remote code execution?

You should distinct two things : the attack and the exploit.
For me (I may be wrong) an exploit is remote as long as it can be executed from an different host than the target.
An attack can be local (from the same network) or remote (from another network).

Ok, thank you. That does help. :)
