What program are you running inside your session? Can you send me a screen snapshot?

I think it might be the logical links, but I couldn't find anything in the doc about it.

You're talking about the output of the 'ls' command? Check out the 'dircolors' command.

Try:

man dircolors

Re: Display Question 16 Years, 9 Months ago  
This is what I have for colors, and not one of them has the blinking code (05). I since have found out that our server has been hacked, and all along I was wondering if the blinking was some indication that something like this had happened. Do you think that the blinking could be related to that (i.e. being hacked)? All the blinking items are links.

Re: Display Question 16 Years, 9 Months ago  
After some testing, I've come to realize that white blinking text on red background means that the directories/files that the link is pointing to are missing (moved or deleted).

As to why they are missing, that is up to you to figure out!
