Slight leaking on UM2+ printhead

I recently upgraded my UMO with a modified version of the UM2 Extruder Upgrade Kit, and found the printhead below the TFM coupler to be leaking slightly:

Is this acceptable? If not, how do I fix it?

    It doesn't look like leaked plastic on your picture, is this perhaps only the copper paste what you spot there?
    A leak is very uncommon, if the nozzle is correctly mounted.
    Can you make a picture of the printhead from below and from the back?
