Hacking of webcam control should not be a concern for OS X Macs. If you are using Windows, you are wise to be cautious and take every possible precaution against Windows' security weaknesses, whether running on a PC or on a Mac (and whether via OS X Boot Camp or one of the PC emulators that runs inside OS X.)
For OS X Macs, the only way would be for you or someone else to have access to and modify or somehow damage your Mac or its software. Unless an "" of your particular Mac has installed, activated, and authorized or some other software for remotely operating your Mac, it is highly unlikely that anyone can be using your cam without your explicit permission and action.
However, if you are convinced that your Mac has unwanted software that you cannot identify, securely erase your entire startup disk. Then reinstall a fresh copy of OS X and all necessary apps and updates. Finally, copy your important user data files to the fresh system from your backup.
