After two years, Gaggia Brera is flooding my counter. Help!

After two years of good performance, my Brera is now flooding my counter.  What happens is-- you start with an empty drip tray and after two double-shots and a rinse cycle, you pull out the drip tray, and find the dirty water all underneath the unit, not in the drip tray.  What could be causing this?

Is it possible that the drain holes below the brew unit and/or the water tank are clogged?  If water was leaking from within the machine, we would only expect clear water to be leaking out.  Dirty water implies it's coming from somewhere in/around where the grounds are collecting.  Try drying this area out, putting a paper towel down, and trying to brew again.
