Responsibility for a borrowed item


One who borrows an item accepts all responsibility for harm it may cause a third party, during the period of the loan.

Therefore: If I borrow a computer, and the computer is infected with some kind of harmful software which then damages someone else's computer during the loan, I am held responsible.

(Shulchan Aruch Choshen Mishpat 347:1)

Have a great day,
