When the real testing starts and while you are testing a major functionality that was working before and it just won't work now and it needs to be fixed right away is known as Hot Fix.
eg. say a login was working before where the user was able to enter user name and password and now when you tested it the next day you realise that you are not able to log in and that there is no way around and that the whole testing process would be at a halt,then such fix to the code by the developers would be known as a hot fix. Typically it is a Priority 1 and Severity 1 defect.
