Default TJ Leaking Brake Master Cylinder

My 99 TJ just started to leak brake fluid from where the master cylinder bolts to the vacuum booster. Anyone else have this happen? Is there a seal that can be repaired?

Replace the master cylinder before you loose your brakes.

Is it possible it can damage the booster? The fluid I mean.
