The message on the frontpage of https://bitcoin-24.com/ is disconcerting news (read more here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=175123.0 and here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=174935.0) and I hope everyone who still had money and/or BTC in there will get it back - including myself.

I had moved most of my stuff by chance the other day to https://vircurex.com/ because I wanted to convert to LTCs but now I'm worried that the same thing might happen to vircurex.com as well... Can anyone shine some light on this site in particular? Are the owners/the owner on this forum?

Generally speaking, how safe are these exchanges, if at all?

No exchange is safe. They take a safe decentralized peer2peer network and turn it into a central point of attack.

Use market places like bitcoin.de if you don't want to get robbed.

So how is bitcoin.de different from other exchanges? To my untrained eye it looks like it's the same exact thing as the others...

I like btc-e, despite not fully trusting them. Bitfloor is great too, but still lacking volume.
