Some are text variants, which means that the only differences between them and their parent virus are in internal program comments that are never displayed, or in text that is displayed to the screen. Some are the result of small changes made to the original virus, apparently to create a new virus which is not detected by certain anti-virus programs. Some are the result of large changes, such as combining the spreading part of one virus with the damage part of another.
