LOL no you dont need an executable, all you need is an exploit to take advantage of the many holes in IE or the others. Execute a specially crafted active X controll through the browser and you can do whatever you would like.
and to the original poster, yes it is possible and quite common for spyware/trojans. Most of the time if you do get one of these you were probably on a site you shouldnt have been such as a porn or crack site. good example of this is cracks.am <--go there for free virus's/trojans on your pc LOL
