Usually, oil filters come with their own gasket attached. It may not be tight. See if you can turn it by hand anymore.If it still leaks, locate an auto parts and by a new one.
And also make sure the old gasket came off ...the cheaper filters even when properly installed (oil not grease on o-ring & only hand tight),tend to leave their gaskets on the engine. Heat related issue due to inferior materials in my opinion.
