Red corrosion build up around oil filter thread?

Hello, last time I changed my oil I noticed a weird build up of something around the oil filter threads. It chips off if you go at it with something hard like a screw driver, but not very nicely. Under it the metal seems slightly discolored. I took a picture as is posted. Chipped a small amount out but decided to leave most of it. Only difference in driving is that I recently have moved to 8k feet and store it in the cold in the winter. Using Suzuki Oil. bike has 25k on it and is an "08. Any thoughts?

It isn't corrosion. It's thread locker. What you see is normal.
