try a dd if=/dev/zero of=/<file path and name> bs=1024 count=1024

this _should_ overwrite the file(s) for 1M with 0s.

Also check selinux status with ls -laZ and see if selinux got turned on or
changed 'getenforce' to show, 'setenforce [01]' to temp change.

As long as the general population is passive, apathetic, diverted to
consumerism or hatred of the vulnerable, then the powerful can do as they
please, and those who survive will be left to contemplate the outcome.
