Hydraulic leak

See where the leak seems to be coming from (that puddle under the car should
point you in the right direction).

Then buy yourself a few spray cans of brake cleaner and spray the suspected
area (hose and connections) so that they are dry.  Then (if you can) have an
assistant start the car and move the steering wheel  back and forth while
you observe with flashlight.  Any leaks should make themselves apparent.
