Removing it from that website does not mean, that you cannot get it. You 
can get every former released version from 

But those versions will get no bugfixes at all. Especially they will get 
no security bug fixes.

I do not understand your problem. You should already have 6.4.7 and 
there will never be a 6.4.8. So why do you need a download link at that 

Kind regards
