Brake fluid

When brake fluid gets contaminated what all do you have to replace. Everthing that it touches or not.

Everything in the system that has any rubber parts. That includes the
Master cylinder
Calipers
Wheel cylinders
All flex hoses
Possible combo valves and ABS units, depending what part of the system they are in and how much the brakes were used.
COMPLETELY and I mean COMPLETELY flush the entire system, preferably before any new parts are installed.

Desi's right. Failure to replace all components with rubber will lead to serious (possibly catastrophic) problems very quickly. How did the system get contaminated?
