I assume this is a message from rhnplugin, or it's stack.

It is weird that the value is empty. There should be:

     You are getting this error because RHN has detected an abuse of
     service from this system and account. This error is triggered when
     your system makes too many connections to Red Hat Network. This
     error can not be triggered under a normal use of the Red Hat Network
     service as configured by default on Red Hat Linux.

     The Red Hat Network services for this system will remain disabled
     until you will reduce the RHN network traffic from your system to
     acceptable limits.

     Please log into RHN and visit https://%(hostname)s/help/contact.pxt
     to contact technical support if you think you have received this
     message in error.

Anyway, in fact this is just abuse reject from RHN. Most probably caused by too often run of rhn_check.
Is it possible that you have it in crontab with low interval (few minutes)?
Are you registred to rhn.redhat.com or to RHN Satellite?
Comment 4 RHEL Product and Program Management 2012-05-03 01:19:52 EDT
Since RHEL 6.3 External Beta has begun, and this bug remains
unresolved, it has been rejected as it is not proposed as
exception or blocker.

Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate and relevant, in the
next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Needinfo for 2 1/2 years. Closing out as insufficient information. 

Please reopen if required.
