Its a nasty thing that replicates itself rapidly and drains system resources speed etc as well as possibly shutting down your machine.

Yes they can. Worms are viruses that spread across the internet. Some can be quite devestating causing data loss and even forcing one to reinstall the operating system. Many major viruses to affect Windows computers were worms.
