water penetration, enriched with rust, coming through the drill holes, probably, though it might be dripping down the cables.

Is there a bathroom above?

Take a photo from the other side of the wall as well as a wider view of this side.
Agree with John D. Is it a bathroom with roof directly above?

Had similar in my old house, turned out to be water getting into the fitting from a small break in the slate of the roof. sorted that out and problem was solved.

It must be a Catholic light fitting, 'cos only Catholics suffer from stigmata.
