    I am obviously Homer Simpson dumb because I can't imagine how this could effect me. I'm going to look into it further to see if I can wrap my mind around this. I haven't gotten a phishing email in years.

    Edit
    I get it! Nevermind.

    Essentially they encoded the malicious code in morse code to bypass the phishing filters.
