Access denied error during login in IE after migrating a SharePoint Publishing Portal

Recently i faced this problem while trying to migrate a publishing portal using stsadm backup and restore commands. I was hit by a strange problem where i wasn’t able to login into the site even with the administrative account. But i was able to login when i opened the site in Google Chrome and Firefox (?!). Finally after googling it out and going through the MSDN forums i found that it was due to some Windows Server Security patch.

You can find the fix for the issue here –
