"Brakes [...] are connected hydraulically to the pedal, yes there is a servo but it would take a leak to stop them working."

It would generally take *two* leaks, one on each of the two independent sets of piping and pistons etc, to disable brakes on modern cars (ie those with dual circuit brakes, which appear to have been standard fitting since late last century. Doesn't even need a computer :)
