You have already got lot n lots of advise on this... just think what will happen..if ur friend leave the organization with in few days..or months.. if the next CTO/Admin conducts forensics/log analysis.....Even your old CTO may not save you.

As the CTO is ur friend ...talk to him and get signed in legal docs... also as John said "Dont try anything new in Live environment"...

you can find out of jail doc here.....

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.

Even more important.  I've lost friends over business, it's not fun
at all.  Use it as practice for a "real" pen test - have a written plan
and timeframe, agree to that plan with him, conduct it in a professional
manner, even if you're doing it in your spare time.
