At the moment, permissions for downloading attachments can't be set. To disable attachment downloading you need to edit your velocity files. But it is not eligible for support by Atlassian.

You can find more information in the following article

yes, i disabled link download attachments(tools>attachments), but on File Lists page links still show and i can direct download. I need edit what is file?

Velocity files are located on the application server where your confluence is installed. Go to the installation directory of you confluence and search for the file listattachmentsforspace.vm . You will find it. 

You can use Custom HTML to hide links on this page.

Of course it is not a complete solution, it is just a workaround:

AJS.toInit(function ($) {
    if (window.location.href.indexOf("viewpageattachments.action")>-1)  AJS.$("#view-attachments a.filename").attr("href","#");
