Brake Pedal Hard Due to Damaged Vacuum Hose to Booster on Dodge Neon

There was a recall to replace the vacuum hose for the brake booster. In the presence of oil, the original hose could swell and become disconnected. The brakes would function but power assist would be lost and the pedal would feel very hard.

I have a problem with my breaks being very hard and my brake light continuously coming on with break fluid leakage. Same time this occurred I start my car to have an obvious vacuum leak issue with engine idling. I popped the good and found the vacuum hose had broken off. Have not gotten this repaired yet as I just noticed what the core problem is.
