To the best of my knowledge the content of the attachments are not indexed. Goes the same for List items. The attachement is attributed to the List item.


I know a few people have verified and confirmed that attachments are indexed and items themselves appear in search results:


I think the storage mechanism for attachments in list items is different than InfoPath form (http://www.bizsupportonline.net/blog/2010/04/top-10-questions-infopath-file-attachments) so the behavior could be different for attachments with InfoPath form though. You may have to try yourself.
