I would get something.  I don't think I'd get too crazy about it but
definitely having something in writing will be a good idea.  Your
friend, the Admin/CTO may not be the person who would "come after you". 

BTW, I'd also be VERY careful.  Don't go testing new tools this way, do
that in your own lab.

Subject: Pen-Test as a favor

Hey, I'm working as an IT intern in a doctors office and I got 
permission to do a little pen-testing on their servers on my own time.  
How necessary would it be to get written permission before I take any 
action?  The Admin/CTO is a pretty good friend and I doubt would even 
consider taking any legal action if anything happened.

If I do need a contract or something could someone point me in the 
direction of a template.  I have never even seen such a 
contract/agreement before and I would never be able to write one up on 
my own properly.

Thanks,
Chris Benedict
