Epoxy/Putty for leaky trans oil plug? (Temporary)

I parked my car at work (Jeep XJ) for a long weekend, and when I came back I saw an email informing me that there was something leaking from it. I recently changed the Transmission fluid, but it seems I overtightened the plug, and broke the weld on the inside of the pan holding the threaded bung on, so the bolt can’t be tightened and just spins in place. I ordered a new pan+gasket (I don’t have the tools/skills to reweld the bung), and shoved a catch pan under it to catch any more leaks. Is there any type of epoxy/putty I can slap around the plug as a temporary fix for piece of mind while I am driving it home to replace the pan (Won’t be in for a few more days)?
