Can happen to anyone...

Someone hacking a hosting website and redirecting downloads to a malicious ISO is not the same as the OS on a running computer being compromised. That said, ANY OS can be infected, as we all know, and vulnerabilities exist in anything with any degree of complexity. It's a testament to Mint's popularity that it's starting to show up on the radar of baddies.
