Luclily I live in a country that believe in innocent until proven guilty and to protect that innocence and does not make mug shots public.

Scandinavians and those of other small Northern European countries believed they lived in a happy, tolerant, socially cradle-to-grave protected society, and regularly mocked the US for being cruel and hard-hearted to the down-trodden. Until waves of immigrants flooded in, and now they're cutting programs.

Point being that maybe your country isn't as perfect as you think it is.

Stories of people downloading stuff, either by direct download or P2P and ending up with something different aren't all that rare.

Which is why if you do accidentally download something like that, you must clear your cache, empty the recycle bin and repeatedly overwrite all the free space on your disk.

would a person smart enough to be a surgeon be dumb enough to send the computer for repair with a third party knowing it had child pornography inside?

Emphatically YES! Smarts in one narrow field doesn't guarantee smarts in every field: John Podesta is a Smart Guy, but he was stupid enough to fall for a phishing attack.
