No what he is looking for is something that scrambles the disk so that the file is not recoverable. rm doesn't compleatly remove the file, it just deleates the heading.

Sorry, I don't know one, I will go look, but I asume you have already so I probably wont find anything.

There is, 'Kill Disk'.
Though not Linux specific, it might be what you need.
