When clicking a attachment in the forum. Anyone have an ideas of what is causing this issue? 

Original like that is clicked, 


Url: it directs to,

That would generally indicate the attachment is no longer there.

I don't think you've noticed that the provided atachment link is missing the &key parameter which, if missing, means that the attachment won't be accessible even if it was there because a security check fails as a result - and will present the following message:

Could contain: File, Webpage, Page, Text


If it was me investigating this, I would be looking at the content that contains the attachment link, to determine if it is missing the key element there. If so then it was possibly posted in a version when the &key= element wasn't being added to attachment links due to an IPS bug that has since been resolved...but hey, that's me.

It is attached to a topic. Nothing we have is being deleted. 

I had someone upload an attachment and right after tried to view and we get the same error. 

Now I am getting reports that users are unable to attach anything to topics now. 

We are hosted with Invision, so I am not sure what to do from here.
