No.  No need to panic at all.  You'll see this sort of thing occasionally.  
Someone called hacker-24 must be registered to this list.  Presumably he is no 
longer at versanet.de, and didn't change his registration on the list.  When 
messages go out the mail program at versanet knows there is no account in that 
name, so sends a bounce message.  Depending on how it's configured, it's not 
so unusual for it to go to the person who sent the message to the list.  It's 
annoying but no threat to you.
