It happens. Malware authors buy ad space with a network and legitimate sites end up presenting those viruses through those ads. Those malicious ads take advantage of some browser flaw to install a virus on your system. All of this is automated and there's typically no human checking in the process. It's probably the most common method of distributing viruses these days, and it's why ad blocking browser extensions are technically a security tool.
