An Italian Microsoft forum provided this news. According to Microsoft representative:

We are sorry that some of you have been inconvenienced by this situation. We’ve identified some models of Lumia 535 are presenting different anomalies on the touchscreen performance.

“An OTA (over the air) software update has been deployed in 23rd of December 2014, solving most of the problems but certainly not for all customers.”

“Our Technical Support Operations team here in Finland, as well as the engineering teams in the US and China have the matter under investigation marked as urgent priority, in the meantime please use the troubleshooting offered by my colleagues in this thread.”

“When our colleagues in the engineering team have identified the cause of the conflict, we will provide further information, whether this is another software update or an action performed on hardware at an authorised Care Point, (at this time Care Points have not received updated info regarding this topic, thus is useless to visit them)”

“We assure you that Microsoft does take matters like this very seriously and our teams are working frantically to resolve this concern for our customers. For the time being, we can only recommend that you use the troubleshooting provided whilst we work to ensure that the situation is properly solved, and that you accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused.
