Sounds as if your disposer has developed a leak. How old is the unit?

Disposer leak

Buy a new one, the cost of repairing is usually more then the cost of the new. Luck.

Just because it is dripping from the bottom, doesn't mean it leaking at the bottom. If the unit isn't very old, all rusted up and looking like it has seen better days; look at the seal between it and the sink drain, if there is a line going to the dishwaser, check it out. Just make sure you find where the leak is starting at, not ending up.
If you find the disposal has a small hole, where the drip is seen...replace it.
