We have noticed that anonymous users have the ability to download an attachment from our site by entering a url. As far as our settings go this should not be allowed and anonymous users can not access confluence. 

Is there something I am missing here?

Make sure that your global permissions does not allow anonymous access.

I assume you want Anonymous Users to access your Space(s) as that is a specific deliberate decision to provide that ability.

I am not sure if you can prevent anyone with view access to a page not being able to download an attachment to that page - Anonymous or as a user login.  It seems a bit pointless to be able to see a page with a link to an attachment but the link doesn't work for some people ...

If you don't want the Anonymous people to get the attachment, make a Child page with Restricted View to only Confluence Users and put the attachment there, then Anonymous can't see the attachment even exists
