It seems possible to attach musescore backup files (those starting with a dot and ending with a comma) to forum topic or issues, but these can then not get downloaded. So either attaching them should get prevented or the download needs to get fixed.
Chrome and IE11 (both on Windows 7) give error 403 forbidden

If I do upload such a file, I see a message reg. the file having been renamed for security reasons.

either it should be prevented or download of then should be made possible (there are occasions where the backup file is useful, but these are rare and by far outnumber the cases where they get attached by accident)
