Not necessarily, one could simply find a portion of the original program that is overspecified, or a feature that most people don't use, and write your code into that space. If the code you replace is small enough, it'll likely fit into a convenient block boundary, such that your code will either be downloaded or not, and you really don't necessarily care about infecting the whole network.
