Wireshark-dev: Re: [Wireshark-dev] Extract bytes from a tvbuff_t

fwrite(extracted, sizeof(extracted), 1, file)

extracted is a pointer so sizeof(extracted) is the size of pointers on
your platform.   Often 4 on 32-bit platforms and 8 on 64-bit.

You need something like this :
fwrite(extracted, tvb_get_length(tvb, 0), 1, file)
