Something quite disgusting appeared on the junipers. Looks like this. There was much more of that, the most affected parts were cut, but it's still there.

What is it, where did it come from, and what best to do about it?

Also, can it spread to nearby plants?

Sorry about the low quality photos, that's the best the phone can do in cloudy weather.

What comes to my mind is a rust disease, check out these pictures of rust on Juniper (also affects pears) caused by Gymnosporangium sabinae in Europe:
