If you have a forum hidden from a usergroup, but you have explicitly enabled 'Can download attachments' on the forum permissions for that usergroup, the users still can't download attachments by linking to them directly (like http://www.myforum.com/attachment.php?aid=xxx )

To replicate:
1)Create a forum and remove all permissions from a usergroup of your choice to it
2)Edit the permissions for that usergroup on that forum and only enable 'Can download attachments'
3)Users of group still cannot download attachments with a link to it

That's intended, you can't download attachments you can't see...
