Is it possible for logs for whatever app. to fill up all your storage space on your harddrive?

Sure it's possible.. Anything is possible, given the right (or wrong) conditions.

Sometimes, this tactic is used to mount (I believe) a DoS attack on a server (Denial of Service) by crippling the server by means of a full hard disk.

Is there some specific example or situation or application you are concerned with, or is this a hypothetical question?
