2008 Hyundai Veracruz - oil leaks onto alternator

any permanent solution for oil leaking from valve
cover gasket onto alternator. Alternator shorts out
all dash lights come on, and engine stops running.
Been through this scenario four times. This is really
problematic and any suggestions appreciated.

Four time? I would wonder about the quality of the replacement gaskets, where were they from?
It is possible the valve cover itself was damaged during one of the replacements.
