Today I was trying to setup SourceTree on a co-workers machine.
While we were able to start the install without issue, when we got to the screen that requires you to log into Atlassian she kept getting a 403 error. The URL from the embedded instance of IE was res://ieframe.dll/http_403_webOC.htm#https://id.atlassian.com/login?application=sourcetree
We were able to log in via Chrome without issue, but as soon as we switched over to IE we got this same error on login. There doesn't appear to be anything wrong with the IE install.
We attempted to login via Google, as well as via an Atlassian user account.

Internet Options > Privacy > Default (button)
That was enough to get them from High to Medium, and allowed her to log in.
Didn't even think to check these.
Same 403 error after logging in.
