      Description

      All the WS calls declare the header 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *'; however token.php does not. But that last one is used to initiate the authenticate process with Moodle (HEAD request) which is blocked by the browsers.

      To replicate, add a site with a browser that did not disable CORS.
