Sometimes I'm checking the connected peers I today I saw one identified as "/BitcoinUnlimited:1.0.2(EB16; AD12)/" User Agent. I haven't saw this before, all I see is Satoshi User Agents.

enter image description here

It this the hard fork Bitcoin Cash wallet peer? I don't want to help the Bitcoin Cash network, can I ban all peers with this User Agent?

BitcoinUnlimited is fork of Bitcoin project, maintained on github.

People using BitcoinUnlmited instead of Bitcoin-core are showing that as User Agent

BitcoinUnlimited offers two builds one for Bitcoin and other for Bitcoin Cash.

So what you are seeing is people using BitcoinUnlmited client for Bitcoin.

You don't have to BAN them, as they are not on BitcoinCash network but on Bitcoin Network.
