Default External green radiator corrosion

I have a green corrosion-like substance starting to appear on the OUTSIDE of my brass/copper radiator. Someone suggested this is a result of the manufacturing process chemicals and oxidation. What is this and what's the best way to clean this off,...vinegar, simple green, paint over it?

very minor leak, evaporating before you see it?

Oxidation. I sort of agree with Alan if it is in a car. I have a NOS core that is almost completely covered with greenish/gray oxidation. Spray it with vinegar and see what happens.
