What does it mean when a ship nearby is shown in the directory list on the right side of the screen, flashing red?

There's a small white triangle on your overview, rightclick it and go to settings. If you stroll around that you'll find the answer to your question and any other related question. Also you'll find that you can joke around with the setting to suit your personal needs.

In this case, he's either at war with you (but then you'd know that) Or he has a security rating of -5 or lower, this means that you can shoot him without CONCORD interveing... however, HE WILL intervene... and he didn't get his negative status for nothing. In high sec you should be quite ok, in low sec, move; either jump or warp to a safespot.

There is also the possiblity that he stole from one of your cans or a can of a corp mate, giving you 15 minutes to exact you revenge. In short blinking red means that you can shoot him without concord getting involved. Note, if you attack him, he can fight back. So be careful if you choose to attack.

There is also an overview bug, whereby the player might be flashing red to you in your overview, you think you have the rights to blast your target to hell but when you do Concord comes and pwns your ass. Bottom Line is be careful what you shoot at in this buggy game Rolling Eyes

It's worh pressing Tab twice to close and re-open overview, just to reset it- if the flashing red is an overview bug, you'll end up in mess by firing on someone you shouldn't....
