Broken memory. Broken kernel (possibly but not necessarily the filesystem
driver). Hacked machine. Broken hardware.

For breakage of something as significant as /etc/shells, I'd prioritise
investigations in that order. Memtest86+ is a no-brainer, so let it
test your machine. Are you using a kernel that's got known issues with
whatever filesystem you are using for /etc? (Have you looked?)

What was the outcome of your investigation into the previous situation?
