But the most unsettling part of this is the fact that Parallels had to know they would be found out, and went ahead anyway.

This may just mean they had no choice in the matter. Imagine NSA shows up on your door, tells you you will create a remote access backdoor into your product and not tell anyone or they will screw up you and your company, you will do it too. Any corporation will. It's not NSA writing all those backdoors, it's the poor blackmailed companies themselves, for their own money, with their own know how of their product! And yeah, we can assure the public, NSA does not put backdoors anywhere, right? It's the companies doing it! As for this being a proper place for the backdoor, it is proper place for backdoor into the virtual machines, not the OS.
