    After the attacker run tracert on a destination server ... how does he
    know what is the device in between - whether is it a switch, hub or
    router? How can he differentiate it?

    Easy. If you see it, it's a router.
    If you don't see it, its either a switch, a hub or a plain cable
    :)
