OMG... that is ughly. Well, technicaly... any cap can blow. Just reverse the polarity or overshoot the maximum voltage and it die, but in good circuit... that should not be happening! The black thing might not be only resistors, even little coils can be like this. Obviously overstressed... what device it is anyway?

Goes to show that even good caps can call it a day, that looks like Nichicon and they are decent caps.
A lot of the ones I see around mother boards especially where they are positioned call also be indicative of bad cooling. Dell had a bad design for years in their GX series PC towers that starved the Caps of any airflow and that caused many many dead boards.
