The OTRS Project reports:

This advisory covers vulnerabilities discovered in the OTRS core system. This is a variance of the XSS vulnerability, where an attacker could send a specially prepared HTML email to OTRS which would cause JavaScript code to be executed in your browser while displaying the email in Firefox and Opera. In this case this is achieved with an invalid HTML structure with nested tags. Affected by this vulnerability are all releases of OTRS 2.4.x up to and including 2.4.13, 3.0.x up to and including 3.0.15 and 3.1.x up to and including 3.1.9 in combination with Firefox and Opera.
