Well, if you tell you client that you absolutely will never crash their
server, then you would be responsible.  It seems like a more reasonable
option would be to tell the customer that you will avoid attacks that
are known to take servers down and particularly dangerous ones but that
they should have backups and that servers with stack problems and
certain configuration issues could be negatively affected.  ...then get
them to sign off on that.

I need to know if internal auditor is scanning a system over the LAN
during audit assignment, who should take the responsibility if the
scanned system went down/ crashed due to this scan. I am quite sure
scanning has to be prearranged with IT and IT Security and approved on
the targeted systems, and it's important for IT auditor to perform such
scanning to avoid any scope limitations during the audit.
