HDFS files are read-only, that is you cannot modify them after they are 
created written to and closed.
But you can always remove them. There is no protection against that as 
of today.
File permissions are being developed as we speak.
http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/HADOOP-1298
You can also activate Trash as a protection for accidental file removals.
