Actually, from what I'm reading, this is going to be less of a
threat to the internet as a whole than Code Red.  "They" are
saying that it is more of a threat because over time it causes
degradation of the machine.  This will make system administrators
take a look at why their systems are running like a dog, and
will give them an opportunity to discover the worm and clean it
out.

In comparison, Code Red doesn't' degregate the speed of the
machine and so most sysops who have it running on their boxes
haven't the foggiest clue it's there.
