    Corrosion, acid leak. Don't get it on anything.or that will get eaten away.

    Corrosion.

    Clean it off with a baking power solution - or just use a brush to scrub it and then wipe it off. Remove the battery cables so you can get the terminals clean, then reinstall - using some dielectric grease, and make sure you get them nice and tight.

    That is sulphate from the battery. You should clean it off with a solution of baking powder in the first instance. Then clean and paint it with a good metal paint when convenient. If you ignore it holes will appear over time.
