      Issue Summary

      If a user attempt to access an attachment in an issue they do not have the appropriate permission to and the attachment contains a white space, JIRA throws a misleading error with regards getOutputStream in the logs multiple times which can be confusing.

      Use case scenario

      As an Admin, if you notice an error such as the above, you can copy the URL to investigate which page is causing the problem which would then lead to the error being created.

      Secondly, if a user is given the link to the attachment because a colleague believes it would be useful to him and he is not yet granted permission to view the issue, the error above would be thrown.

      Steps to Reproduce
      1. Create an issue in JIRA as user A.
      2. Add an attachment that has a white space to the issue.
      3. Copy the URL of the attachment.
      4. In a private browsing mode or a different browser, login to JIRA as user B.
      5. Paste the URL of the attachment copied in step 3 to a tab in the Browser User B logged in to.
      Expected Behavior

      JIRA throws a permission validation error that is easy to understand.

      Actual Behavior

      JIRA throws the error above which makes it look like a stream object is failing and can be misleading.
