This technique is sometimes used by computer viruses, shellcodes and computer worms to hide their presence.
Metamorphic code is code that when run outputs a logical equivalent version of its own code under some interpretation. This is similar to a quine, except that the quines source code are exactly equivalent to their own output. Metamorphic code also usually output machine code and not its own source code.
