The term “bug” is not very precise

Error: mistake made by the developer; located in people’s heads.

 

Fault: an error in a program. An error may lead to one or more faults.

 

Failure: execution of faulty code may lead to one or more failures. Failures are found by comparing the actual output with the expected output.

 

Many people still call it a “bug”!

Nice way to present. Your website is compact, but has a lot of good information explained in a very clear way.

"Bug" is a undefined and unexpected behaviour of the software. The term "undefined" is the behavior which is not described as requirement in Functional or Requirement specification of a document.
The term "unexpected" is the implicit, intended and wanted requirement of the SW which is not exactly documented
