Oil filter on too loose, the seal could be damaged, mating surface could be damaged, case slightly cracked.

Pretty much everything that Demented said. I had a Honda oil filter on my wife's track bike develop a pinhole last year at a track day. That was the first time I've ever seen a filter get one and I've been riding for a loooong time. Start the bike up (with the lowers off and see if you can tell exactly where it's coming from. Find it, fix it, problem solved.......go out and ride!
