Microsoft themselves recommend that people NOT use Silverlight. They're going to discontinue it in time. Therefore, if you have it installed, ask yourself whether you actually need and want it. If not, then UNinstall it and save yourself from the potential security risks of having it installed.

Oh again. Installer ofvMicrosoft Silverlight downloaded from Macupdate contains malware that Virusbarrier block and alert. Why Macupdate decide to do all this inclusion of adware IR malware in the installer without notice to user?ni am a paid subscriber to Macupdate, and even I have set to block ad from Macupdate profile, the malware skill sneak in without notice I have to be very careful now with download from Macupdate. After all trust is hard to build but easybtondestroy. Think about this Macupdate!

Version 5.1.40416.0, dated 12 May 2015 can't be opened under Yosemite without changing default security settings. Humm...Miscosoft fixes their security problems by delivering a non-conforming package? Is there a technical reason that justifies this? No README in disk image - just Silverlight.pkg. Will not be installing until clarified.

A closed source plugin for your browser. From Microsoft. Deprecated since 2011. Enough said. Sadly a few (usually very badly written) web pages and web apps still use it for some reason.

I have recently been getting some highly suspicious dialogs apparently relating to a Silverlight update appearing on my Mac without doing anything to trigger them (like checking for updates, for example). The title is "Microsoft Silverlight Update Available" and it carries on with some text encouraging me to install it. There is a very generic application icon within the dialog but nothing else, and certainly nothing that gives me any confidence that this is genuinely from Microsoft. Every sinew of my body is telling me this is bogus - surely Microsoft of all people would not issue an upgrade prompt that is one of the least believable I have ever seen? There are only two alternatives at the bottom of the dialog - "Remind Me Later" or "Update Now". What is the verdict of others?

Silverlight works fine on my MBP (early 2011) with OS X 10.8.5. I use it frequently as I am a Netflix subscriber. Never had an issue with it, although it does make my fans accelerate.

Silverlight 5 Build 5.1.30214.0 Released March 11, 2014, as Pender stated, this version will not run on Safari7.0.2 in Mavericks. Must resort to Firefox for Netflix and other sights that use silverlight. I was unable to install an older working version of silverlight. Hoping for a quick fix.

Silverlight 5 Build 5.1.30214.0 Released March 11, 2014 (KB2934150) is now the latest version. This update was supposed to fix a security vulnerability but causes "Plugin Failure" error in Safari 7.0.2. Recommend not updating your Silverlight if you have a working situation. If you are already stuck like I am, temp workaround is that it works for Netflix in Mozilla Firefox 27.

Silverlight 5.1.20913.0 does not work with Mavericks (10.9) Safari 7, Chrome, Firefox or any other numerous Mac browsers when attempting to use the NowTV.com website. No amount of fiddling with the Safari 7 Plug-ins Security settings will allow the site to work. An update is urgently required.
