How to stop Russian sites from hacking your private webcam?

According to the BBC, among others, there are websites in Russia that are broadcasting hacked American webcams, including baby monitors. That’s right, some creep can watch your baby and your interactions with her online in real time. How can people prevent this and keep their webcams secure?
This is a security issue that can be easily addressed. From the reports I’ve read, most if not all of the webcams that are being “hacked” are using either the default password or they are not using ANY password. To protect yourself, change the default password to something else and you will probably be good.
