Default Brake Fluid Leak help?

Ok I have a 99 Ford Ranger 3.0 that has just started leaking brake fluid. It is leaking from a valve connected to the master cylinder. The valve is screwed into the side of the master cylinder and I have no idea what it is called. The truck has abs and the manual does not list it so I can not search for its replacement. If anyone knows what this part is called feel free to let me know. Thanks

Pic? As I only have rear wheel ABS and I'm not sure my brake setup looks the same as yours...

I attached the link to the picture of the valve in question. The leak is coming from the o-ring seen the in the picture on the right hand side screwed into the master cyclinder. I have no idea what the part is called can not find it referenced anywhere.

I got no clue what it's called, but I'm sure it can be fixed....Have you tried turning the fitting to see if it's loose?
