While running a mission in high sec a player from a different corp warped in and started looting. I then attacked him and he warped out.
He came back in a different ship and we started fighting. I had formed a fleet with a corp mate. We're both in the same corp and, at that time, were in the same fleet. He tried to attack the other guy but got a concord warning so he didn't attack.
I ultimately lost the fight (fair enough) but my mate was concorded when he didn't attack.
Since when did CCP change the rules where you couldn't attack somebody stealing from or attacking one of your mates in the same corp/fleet?

Should have been able to attack if he stole the loot from a corp wreck. Salvaging does not count to aggro.

He flagged as red to me, so he must have stolen loot to go red. I fired first, if he didn't loot then I would hve been attacked by Concord.

Different aggro timers.

Classic trick.

1. Steal loot, get aggro timer to whole corp.
2. Let yourself be shot at, say, 5 minutes after the loot theft: new aggro timer for you, you may attack the target for 15 minutes, while the theft victom still has 10 minutes left.
3. Wait for 11 minutes, now return and attack theft victim. He cannot attack you, but you can attack him. As soon as you attack, he may attack back, but his corp mates can't help him anymore.

Many high sec docking port pirates specialize in these kind of things.
