Il mouse collegato al computer e la tua mano potrebbero dirci molto più di quanto sospetti sulla tua identità. Ciò potrebbe essere una cosa buona, come recentemente osservato dai ricercatori in Italia, o fastidiosa come quelli della comunità Tor hanno sottolineato un po’ più di un anno fa. La cosa buona.
