Changing the behavior of the Download option under Attachment tab

Need to change the behavior of the Download option under Attachment tab as explained in the expected behavior below.

Current behavior:
1. Open a Record
2. Click the attachment tab
3. Without modifying the record, click on the attachments. 
4. Download option is enabled. 

Expected behavior:
1. Open a Record
2. Click the attachment tab
3. Without modifying the record, click on the attachments. 
4. Download option is still disabled/greyed out.
The Download should enable only when the record is in modify state.
 

Note: The reason for this request is currently any user can download any attachment from any record. Thus, to improve the security of the data, the change is important and urgent.
