What does the time in the AV signature version signify?

What does the time in the AV signature version signify?
The date and time information contained in the AV signature version, in the `get av scan` (ScreenOS) and 'show security utm anti-virus status' (JUNOS) output represents the time a particular signature pack was released by Kaspersky Labs.  Note that this should not be confused as the time the signature pack was uploaded to our production server.

In the ScreenOS example below, the version information states as `12/04/2009 04:52 GMT`, which means this signature pack was signed out by KL on 04-Dec-2009 at 07:52hrs Moscow Time (GMT +3/+4 depending on daylight saving time).The time stamp also acts as a version identifier for the signature release.

On ScreenOS:
SSG550-> get av scan
<AV scan engine info>
