Thank you for the article. I have been in web dev for few years but didn't know about simple and preflighted requests.
Can we fake an "origin" header by manually adding it and access resources..?
Origin is actually a "forbidden header", you can't manually set it! 😊 We can't fake the Origin header that way.
However, making the exact same request outside a browser (eg. cURL) would give you access to the resources!
