To clarify a bit, you would not want your intranet services to be
cross-origin accessible, as any one of your users websites could in
that case access them. For example you do not want to provide an
interfaces that lets evilhaxor.net modify your firewall settings. In
most cases it is perfectly ok for world readable/writable interfaces
to be cross-origin accessible.

I wrote a simple script which uses CORS to figure out cross-origin
accessible methods on an http server. It seems to work against the
http interface of an OpenLookup server, but it needs to be tested
against other servers with CORS policies. Feel free to try it against
my OpenLookup server by running the following command...

nmap -sV -p 5851 --script http-cors javascript0.org

Please report your results against other targets to the mailing list.
