netstat shows network connection statistics. As such it shows all connections to you computer and not just hackers. You'd have to know which are normal and which are not to get some use out of it.

Traceroute is a tool that shows the path between your ip address and another. It can be used to get an idea of the geographical location that the endpoint ip address is in; however, to claim that it's a good tool for tracking hackers is laughable.

Overall, whomever wrote that knows very little about hackers, their methodology, and how to track them down.
