wheel cylinders

While "bleeding" my rear brakes this afternoon one wheel cylinder appears to
have blown (circled area in red).  Fluid started going everywhere.  My
question is this:  Other than the wheel cylinder being defective, what would
cause it to blow.  As you can see by the image the right plunger hasn't moved
at all whereas the left one appears to be fully extended.

Attached please find an image of the culprit.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
