There was a warning over two months ago about using Kaspersky Lab's security products.

Wired's "The UK's Kaspersky warning is a reminder: data ignores borders; Should you stop using Kaspersky software? Probably not. But everyone needs to be aware of what borders their data is crossing",

Unlikely to be AT ALL applicable to the Telegram Desktop app, but nevertheless mentioned here in connection to Kaspersky.

IMO, it would be foolish not to assume there were back doors in all of the commercial virus scanner products. Either the NSA's in the case of US products or the revelant government agency in their government in the case of non-US products.
