Subject: MS04-011 Break SSL support in IE 6.0.3790.0 with Windows 2003

Hello everyone,

A warning to all Windows 2003 user, this happened on two machine who had the
exact same software configuration but different hardware.

After installing the latest set of patches from microsoft, I was unable to
access sites using SSL, after some investigation it turned out that my IE
Cipher strength was set to 0bit ... After lot of troubleshooting and tryout
with the different solutions offered by Microsoft I decided to take a guess
and uninstall the MS04-011 patch... Well, the problem solved itself, the IE
Cipher Strength is now at 128 like it was before, I can now access sites
using SSL, windowsupdate, msn, etc

Weird ...

Anyone experienced something similar, or its just me ?
