Dd you verify whether you have correctly installed perl module
libwhisker.pmNikto requires this module to generate attacks.

As rightly mentioned by Akash, for working on buffer overflow, and if your
requirements is for a framework kind of environment, you may use metasploit.
Here you get option to select exploit and then select various payloads for
the exploits.

Specifically if you woud like to target a particular application, then you
may need to search the vulnerability (CVE id) which might have affected this
application, and then search for an exploit/proof of concept payload which
will carry out BOA.

Enjoy Buffing... :-)
