i had this same problem. the solution is simple if you are a little bit handy.
there is a bad valve inside. i called Whole Latte Love where i bought the machine and ordered a Steam Valve complete - Compact Frame
its part number GA-%0345.R and two O-Rings
the valve that comes with the machine is plastic and the new one is a brushed metal casing. my guess it will last for 10 years!
two screws on the back and the machine is open
near the front, by the steam wand, with a hose attached coming from the heater, is the valve, attached to the knob on the side
two more screws and the valve wrapped in a plastic housing comes out.
open the plastic housing, remove the insulated hose to the steam wand and the water/steam plastic hose that comes in. replace the valve, hook up the two hoses, but back in housing and you're done. attach back to knob on the outside, put back together and in 30 minutes, the Titanium is like new. no leaks.
it sounds daunting but is pretty easy and beats sending the machine back for repair. i can't go a morning let alone a month without coffee from my Gaggia. once repaired, the coffee is hotter too.

SOURCE: gaggia titanium is leaking water
Mine had the same problem. Take out the dreg drawer and brew unit. Then you will see a plastic cover roughly in the middle of the machine (behind where the brew unit was) that is held in place by two philips screws. Unscrew the screws and take out that small cover. It is probably filled with coffee grounds that prevent water from dripping out through a dripping hole. Clean out the grounds and you should be all set.

What color is the steam manifold? It is located under the black cover with the trough in back under the white tube. If its white or black it probably needs to be replaced. If you cool down the manifold after steaming you can prevent this from happening. Just turn off the steam and then open the knob again to run water. It comes out steam at first but then will turn to a water stream. Then you can close the knob and go about brewing or just let it stand. But its going to have to be replaced.
If it is silver you probably have O-rings that need to be replaced. I would use the black O-rings, not the red. The red ones are a little smaller and can leak.
