There are two different bugs, Gold and Latent. Both exists in application from (lets say) Sprint 1. I would be thankful if you could tell me the difference between Gold bug and Latent bug?
Latent Bug : A latent bug is a bug which is present in the system from previous iterations or release (in your scenario Sprint 1). They are either low priority bugs, which either went undetected or were not reported.
Here is a good description : What is a latent bug?
Golden Bug : If a bug happens to appear, in every iteration or release, affecting the major module, with high priority and high severity, then it would be classified as a golden bug.
Latent Bug: The bug that's not known within the past versions of the software application
Golden Bug: The bug that's occurred in each instances of the application with severity level high and with high priority.
Bugs that stay dormant or hidden are latent bugs. These bugs aren't found till one or a lot of releases of the product.
Golden bugs are bugs which will have an effect on the essential functionality of the system.
Both the bugs are related to manual testing:
Latent Bug: Bugs that remail dormant unhidden are latent bugs. These bugs are not found until one or more releases of the product.
Example: These can be related to date issues like the y2k.
Golden Bug: Golden Bugs are the bugs that affect the critical/major functionalities in our application build
Example: Mainly behavior related to your premium functionality and some times savior or show-stopper
Latent Bug: The bug that is not identified in the past versions of the software application. which is not fetch or display in past versions of the system.
