I believe the movement is known as psuedopodia, because the leukocyte shoots out false feet then flows around it. If you mean how does it know to eat the invader and not the rbc, I think that is a point that is being actively investigated by researchers.

actually amoeba travel using pseudopodia (which is a noun, not a verb). Lymphocytes use a process called chemotaxis and the recognition of invasive v. friendly surface markers is a well established/researched phenomenon.

Almost everything in your response is wrong.

You did spell pseudopodia correctly, and you pointed out pseudopodia is a noun. However, if you look at the submission in question, you will see that the moving cell is clearly marked "white blood cell." A white blood cell is a leukocyte, but not necessarily a lymphocyte; lymphocytes are specific types of wbcs. Chemotaxis is not how they move, but why they move...when they blob around they are still using their "false feet."

I won't even condescend to discuss your opinion on "well established/researched phenomenon" unless you can answer, in one word, "is a virus living or dead?"
