Default brake leak

just had open heart surgery 5 bypasses. course battery was dead after 10 days in the hospital. that goes hand in hand .lol anyway the gf used the car to come get me, said the pedal was slowly going down, at her place the pedal went to the floor and we have a puddle I cant get down to look at it Im thinking the brake line worked it'* way loose as everything but the hose is new what would be best thread sealer to use to keep them from vibrating loose if that is what my problem is I dont think any was used when we did a major brake job a few months ago. thanks

I have never seen a properly tightened brake line just work itself loose. I will bet you find that was not the problem.
