There's a wipe utility available on most linuxy operating systems (though not always installed by default), but the problem is that journaled file systems don't actually write changes to disk immediately, but rather to a separate journal on disk (which improves reliability in case of crashes). That makes wiping files unreliable, so you might just go ahead and simply delete them.
