It's not really a bug but the limitation of having an impossibly long filename. The file extension is stored within the file name so before attaching files to posts, please give them reasonably sized file names by renaming the file.

It will be renamed by script in the future to avoid this issue but until then please rename the files before upload.

As for those who are downloading files and wondering why it's not opening, rename it with the correct file extension e.g. add ".pdf" at the end if it's a pdf file. Usually the poster will state what they're attaching.

Apologies for the inconvenience
