There are a number of causes that could lead to this. It could be bacterial, fungal, or viral.

Because it has been established with no issue for a long period, I am less likely to assume that this is to improper care.

Copper fungicides will be the best option in this case. With the exceptions of viral issues, it will take care of most microbial issues.
