Overfilled? You didn't dump oil in there did you? That's not necessary. But even if you did, that's not causing the leak.
It's leaking because of the gaskets, as Jesse said.
Do not forget to use a quarter size gasket under the bolt holding the top of the oil filter canister. Just8N’s & CNH have them: p/n 01A6749. I have successfully used plastic & copper washers as well as homemade gaskets. Do not forget to use the 7/8” wrench to snugly tighten the bolt on the top of the canister. (Don't ask!). Most oil filters come w/ the large ring gasket; wet it w/ oil first. Save the old gasket until you check the canister for leaks. The new gaskets are sometimes thinner than the older ones & are prone to leakage. If yours leaks, re-install the old gasket. Put the new gasket into the groove in the filter cover. Make certain that there is not another one already in the groove. If the new gasket will not stay in position stick it in place with a little grease or gasket sealer. Make certain that the filter cover is properly positioned on the canister before tightening the top nut.
Next time you change the oil, remove the canister and clean out the crud in the bottom.
