Is there some specific reason you have for wanting old versions? We do
not keep old versions of snort on the site anymore, there are many
reasons for this, the most important one is that you really should not
be using them :D Many of the rules that we now release will not work
on the version of Snort that you are looking for. Many issues have
also been fixed between 2.8.4 and 2.8.5.

If you really want the old version, you could make a request to
snort-site at ...435... and see if someone can help you out.
