One of our customers is using very old version of JIRA.
They reported that suddenly attachment files (to JIRA issues) became unavilable from issue screen.

Attachments are switched off or JIRA does not have permissions to the filesystem where this is stored.
Check those conditions and see if something has gone wrong there.

If the ownership or permissions on those have been changed, it could be that the changes have meant the user running Jira can't read them any more (by "user running Jira", I mean the user account the service is running as, not the humans logging into it)
