Furnace flue between furnay and chimney rusted away

Hello,
I have a 10 year old Payne 80% gas furnace. When it was in stalled the contractor reused the galvanized flue that is between the furnace and the chimney from my at the time 30 year old furnace. While in the basement today I noticed that this galvanized pipe and both elbows are rusted through. So here are my questions...

1. Is this a symtoms of a larger issue or is this just an age issue?
2. How do I go about replacing this? The chimy side seems to be mortared in place?
