So, there is no continuous plan for making antivirus up to date by automatic updates like is for example on firefox which is allways up to date. Thanks for feedback.
PS: This can exclude clean *buntu based distros from file servers which cover security for users.

As you may know, Lubuntu is an Ubuntu project, which is to say that some things affecting Lubuntu actually affect the entire project. In these cases, it's best to reach out to the wider community. This is one such case.
Ubuntu is, more or less, Debian unstable (except it's stable). Things in the Debian repos [autosync] to the Ubuntu repos. By that logic, we should have the [latest clamav] considering we are [before the freeze]. If you read about [sync requests], you'll find they are applicable only to packages where the Ubuntu patches are no longer relevant but this package may need them as the Ubuntu version has five (that's the meaning of the "ubuntu5" at the end of the version string), so you need to look into a [merge].
Interestingly, clamav is not on the merge list, so I'm not sure what's going on there. You may wish to check with the [Ubuntu Developers Team] to figure out what the situation is.

During check of my logs I had found outdated ClamAV binaries (reported by freshclam). Is there any continuous plan for making antivirus up to date?
I know, this is only warning. But why to not have periodically updated antivirus on the same way like web browser firefox which is allways up to date on all *buntu derrivates?
According to http://www.clamav.net/downloads <http://www.clamav.net/downloads> the latest stable version of ClamAV is 0.99.0 from 2015-12-01 18:15:38 UTC and pervious version in Lubuntu is 0.98.7 from 2015-10-12 19:49:40 UTC which is allmost 5 months old.
Clamav and freshclam actual versions:
clamav-freshclam/xenial,now 0.98.7+dfsg-0ubuntu5 powerpc [installed,automatic]
anti-virus utility for Unix - virus database update utility
clamav/xenial,now 0.98.7+dfsg-0ubuntu5 powerpc [installed,automatic]
anti-virus utility for Unix - command-line interface
