No, you're not hacked, it sounds like a loose video connection. Call/bring it in to Apple.

No you are not hacked. Who would want to take a picture of you? :D

It could be your graphics card playing up or even your logic board. Not sure but it doesnt sound good.

i know what you mean, that happened to me a few weeks ago when i was using ichat, when i would send a message, i would get a white flash. it was weird because it was only when i would send a message. it has yet to happen again though

If you go to System Preferences > Universal Access > Hearing and make sure the option "Flash screen when an alert sound occurs" is unticked.

Hope this does the trick.
