A vulnerability in the logging of URI requests may permit a remote attacker to disable logging on an Apache HTTP Server. Version 1.3.27 on Windows systems is reported vulnerable to this issue.
Apache HTTP Server 1.3.27 running on Win32 systems contains a vulnerability that could enable an attacker to stop the logging process. If the server is configured to use rotatelogs then an attacker can stop logging on the server by sending a crafted URI Request.
Logging on the web server will be disabled. This can be used to mask future attacks against the server.
Upgrade to Apache 1.3.28 to resolve this issue.
Disable the rotatelogs utility on CustomLog or ErrorLog directives.
Thanks to Hitachi Incident Response Team for reporting this vulnerability.
