fungus or dust/fibre?

No way so much dust/fiber can get in there. Lens/CCD fungus problem is pretty common here due to high humidity.

Did you do the cleaning yourself?

Yes, did it myself. Folded a piece of lint free cloth to fit in the CCD cavity, held with tweezer, wet with methanol and rubbed gently. It took me around 2 hours, because the dirt get pushed around instead of getting removed. The lint free cloth occasionally dropped some lint too. Make sure it is wet with methanol and repeat with fresh cloth.
