    You may try boiling vinegar in it then reheat to dry out and wipe out with oil on paper towel while still hot. Mine sat for a few year's like that and stops rusting.

    I would give it a good clean in hot soapy water, rinse clean, dry and then re season it.
    They can go rancid after a period of no use.
    Another option is to fill the pot with heavily salted water, bring to a boil, dump and rinse well. then re oil.

    I chucked one of our cast pans in the fire box of our log burner to burn off all the old cooking residues that scrubbing won't budge from the outside edge and underside. It worked a treat and after re-seasoning in the oven, it came up like new again.
    I'm sure I was very lucky not to have warped the base of it so I'd take my experience with a pinch of salt. It got really hot in there but figured they're designed to cook directly on hot coals on an open fire when camping.
    This was a cheap Mitre10 one that's getting on for 20 years old so I wasn't worried if I buggered it in the process.

    Rancid oil. Oxidation of the oil starts as soon as it's on. Clean thoroughly off and start again as the guys have said.
