How do you classify bug severity?

At my current job we have Low, Medium, High priority bugs.

  • Low priority bugs are small errors that don't stop shipping or cause real trouble for any user.
  • Medium priority bugs cause some internal users trouble but have known workarounds.
  • High priority bugs are problems that our customers will see, can corrupt data, or crash a system.

How do other teams classify bugs in their system?
