First time I've seen that, thanks for sharing.
(I have absolutely no idea what it is)

Looks like a wooly moth pupea. Catapiler is another term. Take a sample with a q-tip. It may just be some adhesive left from assembly.

I don't think it's capacitor leakage, it's not yellow for one and it's looks too uniform as opposed to something squirted out...... and when heated usually gives a acrid smell, the stuff is usually corrosive it would eat through the pcb lacquer then gobbled all the copper tracks underneath.
Another reason I don't think it's capacitor damage, when they leak they usually swell up and physical damage can usually be seen from their bases, tops or sides - they become high ESR, then the ripple current starts to heat them up.... what ever it is it's mold of some form judging from the white hairy bits...... that is due to bacteria growth isn't it?
Not some toffee or chew that's been dropped in by chance?

Don't know but it doesn't have the appearance of seeping fluid to me either. Try pulling it out with tweezers?
