Private report: No CVE-ID:
 [2003-11-04 09:02 UTC] jcastro at elnuevodia dot com
If I use ftp_get  and the $server_file does not exist on the server,  I will get a zero byte file created in my machine with the name that I put in the $local_file variable. 

I am running php 4.3.3 on windows xp prof 

Reproduce code:
@ftp_get($conn_id, $local_file, $server_file, FTP_BINARY))

Expected result:
No file should be created since the server_file did not exits

Actual result:
a zero byte file is created
